Two biggest Philippine airlines are both seeking more frequent flights to Macau, eyeing to expand their market shares in the China travel boom.

Philippine Airlines (PAL) spokesperson Rolando Estabillo told online edition of Philippine Daily Inquirer that PAL plans to launch five flights on weekly basis between Macau and Manila, starting May 1.

PAL only recently introduced a twice-weekly service to Chinese western duo cities of Chongqing and Chengdu. With five new flights a week to Macau, plus flights to Shanghai, Xiamen, Hong Kong and Beijing, PAL will have a total of 56 flights a week to China by May, the report said.

Meanwhile, the budget carrier Cebu Pacific Air, also the flagship domestic airline in the Philippines, is seeking four times a week flights between Macau and Clark Freeport, north of Manila.

Cebu Pacific also plans to increase Manila-Macau flights from four a week to five starting June 30.

But these flights will only become certain after the Philippineair service negotiating panel manages to win more flight entitlements from Macau air traffic authority.
