According to the Civil Aeronautics Board, local carriers Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific Air and Philippines AirAsia met on Monday and reached an agreement to provide free cargo space to help transport aid for the quake-hit areas in Mindanao.

“Those which can avail of the free cargo include agencies and non-government organizations already accredited with the three airlines,” the Department of Transportation said.
