All Stop for Seair..NO to Davao

The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) has issued a cease and desist order stopping SEAIR and Singapore-based Tiger Airways from starting Manila-Cebu and Manila-Davao flights, saying these are a way for Tiger to get internal flights reserved for local carriers.

The CAB said advertisements for the flights, as well as the booking and payment arrangements, indicate that they are Tiger flights using SEAIR routes. This is beyond the aircraft lease agreement approved by the CAB, the agency said. The CAB said it was acting on petitions from Cebu Air, Philippine Airlines and Air Philippines Express
