The Philippines and Vietnam have recently signed its latest bilateral agreement in announcing an open skies deal, liberalization air rights between the two countries. Based on the new deal, Manila and Ho Chi Minh cities will both allow 2,650 seats per week of travel.

“The provision for unlimited flights to all points outside Manila is in line with the government’s efforts to decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, while at the same time promote countryside development,” writes Paolo G. Montecillo of the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
