South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR) will commence on Dec. 16, 2010 its regular Clark-Singapore-Clark flight signaling the start of additional international operations at the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA).
“We (Clark International Airport Corporation) welcome this development because it will start the bigger operations of SEAIR with their first regional international flight,” Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) president and CEO Victor Jose I. Luciano said.
Luciano said SEAIR’s Singapore operations at DMIA will further boost the airport’s development as it serves more passengers, especially overseas Filipino workers which will be brought closer to their families, tourists, businessmen and travellers through the said flight.
DMIA averages 11 flights per day provided by foreign and local budget carriers since 2003.
From December 16 to 20, SEAIR will begin once daily flights between Clark and Singapore and increase to twice daily on Dec. 21, 2010.
SEAIR is a pioneer locator and airline at the Clark Freeport Zone, starting operations in 1995. It is the second oldest airline in the country next to Philippine Airlines.
SEAIR operates domestic flights such as its Boracay flight via the DMIA in Clark. Other destinations include Cebu and Davao, among others.
SEAIR president and CEO Avelino Zapanta said SEAIR leased two Airbus 319 aircraft, with a capacity of 144 seats, from its partner Tiger Airways of Singapore.
