MANILA, Philippines - Tiger Airways Philippines is planning to mount flights between Manila and Macau.

The low-cost carrier is seeking Civil Aeronautics Board's (CAB) approval to fly to Macau from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) five times a week, with an Airbus A319 or Airbus A320.

Tiger Airways Philippines, a unit of Singapore's Tiger Airways Holdings Ltd. of Singapore, has filed an application for re-allocation of entitlements to Macau. This as the Philippines and Macau concluded a memorandum of understanding last June. The seat entitlements are 900 seats per week per way.

At present, Tiger Airways Philippines flies to Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong. Its local destinations include Clark, Laoag, Bacolod, Kalibo, Cebu, Iloilo, Tacloban and Puerto Princesa.
