Manila, Yangon to hold air talks May 19

As part of efforts to strike deals with as many nations as possible and strengthen the tourism sector, the Philippines said Thursday air talks have been scheduled with Myanmar this month.

The talks will happen in Yangon on May 19, said Jose Perpetuo Lotilla, the Philippine Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) undersecretary, said.

This move is also in line with the upcoming ASEAN Economic Integration, forming a single market for the 10-nation bloc, Lotilla said, citing the importance of forging an air agreement with Myanmar.

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) groups Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Air talks with France in January, Singapore in February, and New Zealand in March were all a success, according to the DOTC.

Flag carrier Philippine Airlines and budget airline Cebu Pacific are both interested in launching direct flights to Yangon.
