Scheduled flights between the Philippines and Taiwan have again been halted as a dispute over capacity has re-erupted. China Airlines, EVA Airways and Philippine Airlines all suspended services between Taipei and Manila in mid-March, one month after resuming them. This followed a settlement to a dispute between Taiwan's Civil Aeronautics Authority (CAA) and the Philippine Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB). A settlement was reached late in January reinstating the 1996 agreement that allowed airlines to carry up to 9,600 passengers weekly.

Taiwan's CAA agreed to a change, however, that restricted capacity on the Taipei-Manila route to 4,800 seats. The dispute re-erupted after Taiwan rejected a CAB claim that the agreement also called for capacity restrictions on the Kaohsiung-Manila route.
