    ZAMBOANGA CITY, Aug 16 Asia Pulse - Mosphil Aero, Incorporated, a Russian-Filipino-owned airline firm, is opening a new air route this month linking this city, Sandakan and Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia.
    Mayor Celso Lobregat said top officials of the airline company indicated to him their plan to fly the Zamboanga-Sandakan-Kota Kinabalu route during their meeting last week.
