Flights between UAE, Philippines To Soar By 25%
Flights between the UAE and the Philippines will see a 25 per cent increase soon, possibly connecting more regional airports in the south-east Asian nation to the hubs of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, a senior Philippine aviation official confirmed to Gulf News on Friday night.
While the increase is modest, it would help address the massive spike in demand for seats on this busy route as both the Philippines and the UAE seek to boost their tourism sectors.
On Friday, the Philippines and the UAE concluded two-day talks in which they agreed to increase air traffic rights between the two nations from the current 28 weekly flights to 35 from each side. Details
