SEAir expands with a vengeance
Sim Kok Chwee, Singapore, June 8, 2012
 

FRESH from a US$7-million investment by Singapore’s Tiger Airways (TTG Asia e-Daily, June 5, 2012), Philippine carrier Southeast Asian Airlines (SEAir) is embarking on a domestic expansion spree with the launch of seven new routes from Manila.

 

Starting July 1, SEAir will operate thrice-daily flights on the Manila-Cebu route. On August 1, the carrier will start daily services between Manila and Tacloban. Daily flights between Manila and Iloilo will commence on August 2, followed by daily services between Manila and Puerto Princesa on August 3.

 

On August 4, daily services will begin on the Manila-Kalibo route. Two more routes linking Manila to Davao (twice-daily) and Bacolod (daily) will be launched on August 18 and 20, respectively.

 

To facilitate its growth, SEAir will add one new Airbus A320 aircraft to its fleet within the next fortnight, with another two planes expected to join the fleet in July.
