SEAIR launches new domestic Philippine routes from Manila

Jose "Oti" Montelibano, Mayor of Silay; and Patrick Tan, Sea Officer in Charge, were joined by Evlio Leaonardia, Mayor of Bacolod City to celebrate SEAIR’s inaugural flight from Manila to Bacolod.

It’s more fun in the Philippines: The launch of SEAIR’s new route from Manila to Davao coincided with the launch of special livery by SEAir in cooperation with the Philippine Department of Tourism. Celebrating in Davao were: Victor Jose Luciano, Clark International Airport’s CEO; Iren Dornier, SEAIR’s co-founder; Nikos Gitsis, SEAIR’s co-founder; Ramon Jimenez, Philippine Tourism Secretary, and Patrick Tan, SEAIR’s CEO.

  • The Philippine low-cost airline SEAIR, which was analysed earlier this month, has continued its domestic expansion out of the country capital’s main airport in Manila (MNL). The airline, which partners with Tiger Airways of Singapore, launched twice-daily flights to Davao (DVO) in the south of the country on 18 August and daily operations to Bacolod (BCD) in central Philippines on 20 August. Both routes are highly competitive with the Davao route facing competition from Cebu Pacific’s 56, Philippine Airlines’ 35, Airphil Express’ 16 and Zest Air’s 14 flights a week, while the Bacolod route is operating against three airlines; Cebu Pacific with 35, Philippine Airlines with 28 and Airphil Express with 21 weekly flights.
