The governments of the Philippines and Singapore have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to “upgrade and further liberalise” their air services agreement (ASA) to allow operation of up to 150 code-share services a week between two countries. Read More » “This is a significant increase from the present limit of 35 code-share services [weekly],” the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) said. The new cap will be doubled by March 2026 and be completely removed a year later. The agreement permits unlimited code-sharing between Singapore and destinations other than Manila in the Philippines and between Singapore and any points in the Philippines involving airlines from ASEAN or the European Union. “It is important to provide a favourable regulatory environment so our carriers can capitalise on new business opportunities,” Singapore Ministry of Transport deputy secretary, Yee Ping Yi, said. “This MoU will facilitate improved air connectivity between and beyond both countries and is a win-win outcome for both nations.”
