The UAE and Phillipines have inked a new bilateral. Emirates will be meeting with Phillipines Aviation Authorities at the end of April to apply for more frequencies and destinations.
I would expect them to raise the existing 6x weekly to Manila to a daily at least, and probably add another 2-3 weeklies departing DXB around 0300, enabling good connections with the European arrivals. Look out for Cebu to be a potential new destination to be added over the next year or so.
I have heard Qatar has also been granted some extra weekly frequencies into MNL and they've been granted permission to operate to the cities of Cebu and Clark - nonstop from Doha. Qatar - heard anything ?
