Oman Air will be enhancing its frequencies on its Muscat-Manila route from three to seven flights a week, as reported by Muscat Daily.
A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by Oman Air and Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) in the Philippines.
A senior official from CAB was quoted saying: “Oman Air will be increasing number of flights. The designated airlines of Oman and the Philippines shall be permitted to exercise full third and fourth freedom traffic rights on passenger or combination passenger and cargo services with not more than seven weekly frequencies between Manila and Muscat, using any type of aircraft except A380.”
With regard to the fifth freedom passenger traffic rights, wherein an airline may be permitted to drop and pick up passengers for revenue, the MoU states that Oman Air shall be permitted to exercise the right fully at one point in Thailand, one in Malaysia, and one in Indonesia as intermediate and/or beyond points.
