According to a document released by The Civil Aeronautics Board, Cebu Pacific has been cleared by the Philippines government to serve India, one of the fastest growing economies in the world. But the budget airline still faces several hurdles before it can officially launch flights, as per a Philippine Flight Network.
Philippine Airlines still retains six of the seven weekly entitlements that are currently available between Manila and India. Although Philippine Airlines recently cancelled its route to New Delhi, Cebu Pacific still needs to file an application for these entitlements. According to an official from the Civil Aeronautics Board, in spite of Cebu Pacific’s new designation as a carrier to India, the process to apply for the entitlements could take several months.
