Civil aviation in the Philippines is governed by the Civil Aviation Authority Act which created the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines and the Civil Aeronautics Act  which created the Civil Aeronautics Board.  As a signatory to the 1944 Chicago Convention, the Philippines is duty-bound to abide by it in good faith, such as, not to use civil aviation for any purpose inconsistent with its aims. The Chicago Convention formed the International Civil Aviation Organization and  embodies the principles and arrangements agreed to by the contracting states in order that international civil aviation may be developed in a safe and orderly manner and that international air transport services may be established on the basis of equality of opportunity and operated soundly and economically.

In 2015, we provided legal support to the Philippine Government’s transaction advisor for the completion of the feasibility study for a major airport project in the Philippines, by preparing the legal and institutional analysis for the project.
