Come July 10, 2013, a new airline will officially start to fly in roaring yellow and black stripes—Tigerair Philippines. Changing from Southeast Asian Airways (SEAIR), the airline similarly adopted the new name as part of the global rebranding of its parent company, which is one of the leading aviation brands in the Asia-Pacific region.
Likewise, the airline will differentiate itself in terms of safety, reliability, and innovation as it promises friendly, high-quality service at value-for-money fares. With plans of expanding its fleet to 25 aircraft in three to five years, it hopes to commence more flights to neighboring countries and make traveling around Asia seamless and enjoyable for Filipinos.
As the rebranding takes effect, Tigerair Philippines will continue to serve its domestic routes from Manila, including Laoag, Bacolod, Kalibo, Cebu, Iloilo, Tacloban and Puerto Princesa. Clark in Pampanga, meanwhile, will be retained as its hub for international destinations: Singapore, Bangkok, and Hong Kong. However, starting July 18, 2013, it will fly Kalibo to Singapore nonstop, making it the first and only airline to do so.
Tigerair maintains sizeable fleets in Singapore and Australia, providing vital air links in both countries. It likewise has partnerships with Tigerair Mandala of Indonesia and Scoot, a no-frills medium to long haul airline with a hub in Singapore. As such, passengers of Tigerair Philippines will enjoy the extensive connectivity in destinations across Asia and Australia at Singapore’s Changi Airport Terminal 2.
