These new and more affordable flights will be marketed and distributed using Tiger Airways' established internet booking system, tigerairways.com. The resulting operational and cost efficiencies will ensure more seats are available and cheaper and will contribute to the growth of SEAIR and the Clark gateway, benefiting customers not only in the Philippines but across the Asia Pacific region.
“With this new collaboration with Tiger Airways, we will also be able to serve more international visitors to the Philippines by offering more destinations with great value, low fares. In addition, the introduction of these new jet services will create a welcome boost to the Philippines tourism industry and create more high calibre local jobs." Said Avelino Zapanta, SEAIR’s President and CEO.
Also, Chin Sak, Hin, the Chief Financial Officer of Tiger Airways Holding Limited expressed their enthusiasm with the partnership, "We are very excited to be working with SEAIR as the first "Partner Airline" of tigerairways.com. Besides the cost advantages resulting from basing aircraft and crew in Clark, SEAIR's extensive experience and brand recognition will ensure that more customers in the Philippines and internationally can access the same low fares offered by Tiger Airways when using the leading regional travel portal "tigerairways.com"
Completing the partnership, Tiger Airways has already received the approval from the Civil Aeronautics Board of the Philippines for the leasing of two Airbus aircraft to SEAIR to service more affordable flights to more passengers.
