Ethiopia, Philippines Sign Air Agreement


Ethiopia, Philippines Sign Air Agreement

Ethiopia and the Philippines have
signed a landmark air services agreement (ASA) which allows their respective
flag carriers to mount flights between the two countries, a local media
Carmelo Arcilla, the Executive
Director of the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) of the Philippines, said in a
message from the Philippine capital on Thursday that “The Philippines and
Ethiopia signed an Air Services Agreement (ASA) in Manila on Wednesday an agreement
that defines the aviation relationship and the exchange of traffic rights
between the two countries,” .

Arcilla said the agreement, which
was signed after two days of talks in Manila, allows for seven flights per week
between Manila and Ethiopia, and unlimited flights between Ethiopia and other
airports in the Philippines other than manila’s Ninoy Aquino International
Airport (NAIA).
“The agreement also allows
intermediate stops in Singapore, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh, India and the Middle
East,” Arcilla said.
Ethiopia sought the air agreement
given its aggressive expansion in Asia, Arcilla said. Ethiopian Airlines
already flies to Hong Kong,

Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Seoul.
“Although the current traffic
between the Philippines and Ethiopia is small, the ASA can open up new
connectivity between the Philippines and Africa, including the Middle East,
given Ethiopia’s location in North East Africa and it being an aviation hub in
that region, that serves as a transit point for passengers from other African
countries and the Middle East,” Arcilla said.
“The agreement therefore offers
opportunities for the enhancement of our air connectivity and the development
of our aviation network, especially that Africa is an emerging market and
growth area.”
