Cebu Pacific CEO urges reciprocity in 'open skies'

Cebu Pacific CEO Lance Gokongwei recommended that reciprocity be an integral requirement under the rules and regulations that will be prepared to implement Executive Order 29, which declared an open skies policy for all Philippines airports (The Philippine Star, 06-Apr-2011). Mr Gokongwei stated, “We would like to be part of this competition. If foreign carriers are given unlimited access on routes to and from the Philippines, we believe it is only fair that Cebu Pacific and other local airlines be given unlimited access to and from the Philippines to these carriers’ home countries, on an equal opportunity of access, on a level playing field.”
