South East Asian Airlines International, also known as SEAIR International or SEAIR-I, is a low-cost airline headquartered in Clark, Philippines. Its main base is the Clark International Airport in Pampanga, Philippines.

History[edit]

The airline was established as SEAir Inc., in 1995 and started operations in the same year. Its franchise however, was granted by Congress only on May 13, 2009 through Republic Act No. 9517.

After SEAIR's rebranding to Tigerair Philippines[2] and the acquisition of Tigerair Philippines by Cebu Pacific,[3] SEAIR International was formed[4] to cater to airports that cannot be reached by jet aircraft flying to former destinations such as Godofredo P. Ramos Airport in Aklan and Puerto Princesa Airport in Palawan as well as chartered flights to Incheon International Airport in Incheon, South Korea.

Suspension[edit]

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) ordered the suspension of the SkyJet's and Seair's Air Operator's Certificate effective May 18, 2015 due to various safety shortcomings that did not meet the safety standards under the Philippine Civil Aviation Regulations.[5] The following month, the CAAP lifted the airline's suspension.[6]

Fleet[edit]

As of November 2017, the SEAir-I fleet consists of the following aircraft:

South East Asian Airlines International Fleet
Aircraft In service Orders Seat configuration Notes
Boeing 737-200 1 Cargo Used for domestic routes
