Singapore Airlines Ltd. plans to expand its operations in the Philippines amid strong domestic demand, an executive said Thursday.
“If there’s an opportunity, we want to grow our services in the Philippines. We are trying to increase our frequency from four daily flights to five daily flights for a number of years but there are no more slots at NAIA [Ninoy Aquino International Airport],” Singapore Airlines regional vice president South East Asia Philip Goh told reporters.
The airline flies to Singapore from Cebu, Davao, Kalibo and Manila.
Goh said the airline was “very optimistic” about its prospects in the Philippines due to strong domestic economy.
“We have seen the market grow and continue to be one of the fastest economies in the region and there’s no reason why we wouldn’t be optimistic,” he said.
