Israel and the Philippines have signed an aviation agreement to allow direct scheduled flights between the two countries for the first time. The agreement supersedes the 1951 agreement.The new agreement allows Israeli and Philippine carriers to make up to 21 scheduled passenger flights and three cargo flights a week. It will also allow Israeli airlines to sell seats on indirect flights between Israel and destinations in the Philippines under code-sharing agreements with Philippine carriers or carriers of third countries.
The Israel Airports Authority believes that the new agreement will boost passenger traffic between Israel and the Philippines, and realize the large potential of visits by Philippine pilgrims to Israel. In addition, thousands of Filipinas currently work in Israel.
