PIA Press Release

SEAIR adds airbus

By Aurora Casimpan

Tacloban City (December 9) -- The blessing of the first Airbus of South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR) on Thursday is welcome news to the country's airline industry.

Starting December 16, the new 144 seat A319 jet aircraft which will fly to Singapore will be the first international destination of SEAIR. President Benigno S. Aquino III was the guest of honor during the blessing of the first Airbus of SEAIR for its international flight.

SEAIR's first Airbus for international destinations is expected to boost the tourism industry in terms of creating more jobs and servicing international passengers for the country.

According to SEAIR President Avelino Zapanta his company is projecting a monthly 60% increase on passenger traffic at the Clark Freeport zone or an addition of 200,000 passengers annually to the 25,000 passenger monthly arrivals at the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) at Clark.

He also said that additional routes for the new jet aircraft will be added in the coming months. In spite of the flak generated by criticism on the logo of the Department of Tourism, players in the industry remain undaunted as shown by the addition of an international flight through SAEIR.

The SEAIR Company trusts the government enough to put an Airline in the hands of the Clark Development Corporation aside from its being the first airline locator at the Clark Freeport zone.

SEAIR from its starting operations in 1995 has been transporting travelers to the country's best tourism destinations like Batanes, Palawan and Boracay. (PIA-8) [top]
