Five airports in the Philippines are to be expanded due to the new Open Skies policy.
Those five airports are:
- Laoag International Airport
- Diosdado Macapagal International Airport
Even before Open Skies though, several airlines have announced plans to expand. Cebu Pacific will add 16 A320 Airbus jets over the next couple of years. Several other airlines have plans to add additional narrow body jets as well.
This will lead too congestion at the airports without the additional capacity.
This is good news to me. More flights within the Philippines should add options and lower fares. I don’t travel by plane a lot but I might go more often if the prices remain low or go even lower. Flights in the Philippines generally cost much less than what I’m use to in the USA. Sometimes the airlines offer promotions with very cheap fares in the country and to international locations as well.
