  • Read more 13APR2014: US, European regulators lift sanctions on Filipino carriers
    Philippine Airlines (PR, Manila) and Cebu Pacific Air (5J, Manila) have been given the go-ahead to add flights to the United States after the Federal Aviation Administration promoted the south-east Asian nation to Category 1 safety status having been downgraded to Category 2 in January 2008.

    In a statement, the FAA said the Philippines' return to Category 1 status was based on a March 2014 FAA review of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).

    "A Category 1 rating means the country’s civil aviation authority complies with ICAO standards. With the International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) Category 1 rating, the Filipino air carriers can add flights and service to the US and carry the code of US carriers," it said.

    Philippine Airlines currently serves Los Angeles Int'l, Honolulu, San Francisco, CA, Toronto Pearson and Vancouver Int'l and has outlined plans to add new East Coast destinations including New York JFK, Miami Int'l and Chicago O'Hare using its new fleet of B777-300(ER)s. For its part, Cebu intends to enter the Guam and Hawaiian markets in the shorterm.

    In a related development, following extensive lobbying by the CAAP, the European Commission has removed Cebu Pacific from the bloc's Banned Operator's List paving the way for it to begin flights to Europe.

    "Following last year's removal of Philippine Airlines from the safety list, this is seen as further proof of the gradual improvement in air safety in the Philippines," the Commission said its latest update.

    The bloc has, however, maintained its embargo on the country's other airlines.
  • Read more 13APR2014: Philippines' SEAir International to establish hub out of Clark
    SEAir International (XO, Clark) is to move ahead with plans to develop Clark into its primary hub when it launches scheduled flights to Caticlan and Puerto Princesa from April 16. Using its new name and airline code 'XO', Seair-I will operate flights 5x and 3x weekly respectively onboard a Do328-100.

    Additionally, the airline has also signed cargo interline agreements with Qatar Airways (QR, Doha Int'l) and Emirates (EK, Dubai Int'l) for its daily cargo runs between Clark and Cebu using its B737-200(F).

    “We will negotiate traffic feeds to and from Qatar Airways, Asiana Airlines (OZ, Seoul Incheon), Jin Air (LJ, Seoul Gimpo), and Dragonair (KA, Hong Kong Chep Lap Kok) in Clark,” said SEAIR-I President, Avelino Zapanta. “We are looking to expand interline agreements with other airlines that are interested in expanding their reach through Clark. We will be capitalizing on our many years of experience in the industry, our brand recall and our network of loyal customers and travel agents.”

    Zapanta said the move to use Clark came about after SEAir-I's slots at Manila were put in jeopardy following the recent takeover of Tigerair Philippines (DG, Clark) by Cebu Pacific Air (5J, Manila). He added that the airline would operate scheduled flights from Clark, while retaining only chartered flights from Manila.

    In line with the airline's expansion plans, the president said Seair-I is looking to acquire more planes to serve upcoming routes to tourist spots like Bantayan, Masbate, Marinduque, Camiguin, and Guiuan. The launch of charter flights to Taiwan, China, and possibly Japan, are also under consideration, he said.

    Seair-I was formed as a Low Cost Carrier in 2012 after South East Asian Airlines (DG, Clark)) was sold to Singapore’s Tiger Airways (TR, Singapore Changi).

    Cebu Pacific Air (5J, Manila) will temporarily transfer its daily Manila to Dubai service from Dubai Int'l to Sharjah for the duration of runway upgrade works. As such, Airline Route reports that the service will be scaled down to 5x weekly from May 1 to July 20. Cebu Pacific uses A330-300s on the route.
  • Read more 31MAR2014: Cebu Pacific pleads its case before the European Commission
    Cebu Pacific Air (5J, Manila) has once again applied to the European Commission to be struck off its Banned Operators List as it pushes to launch services to Europe.

    All Filipino airlines were banned from Europe in 2010 after various safety concerns were discovered during an assessment of the country's aviation infrastructure. By virtue of its improved track record, Philippine Airlines (PR, Manila) was struck off the list late last year paving the way for flights to London Heathrow in November.

    However, the BusinessMirror reports that Cebu representatives have now joined officials from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) in Belgium to argue their case.

    “Cebu Pacific representatives are now with CAAP officials in Brussels to present their case before the European Union. They are applying for the lifting of their ban to fly to Europe,” CAAP Deputy Director John C. Andrews said.

    Both Cebu and Philippine Airlines are eagerly awaiting the results of a January US Federal Aviation Administration audit of the CAAP which could lead to the country's promotion to a Category 1 safety status. The attainment of Category 1 would allow both carriers to increase frequencies and launch new services to the United States.
  • Read more 16MAR2014: Filipino carrier, SEA Air Int'l, applies for Taiwanese rights
    SEAir International (XO, Clark) has applied to the Filipino Civil Aeronautics Board to become a designated carrier of the Philippines so as to launch its first international flights to Taiwan.

    As part of the petition, the airline has requested permission to operate non-scheduled international services between the two nations under the terms of their existing bilateral air service agreement.

    The Philippine Flight Network reports that the CAB has set a hearing date of March 20.

    The carrier had originally intended to launch Manila to Caticlan flights later this year but suspended those plans in the wake of the takeover of Tigerair Philippines (DG, Clark) by Cebu Pacific Air (5J, Manila). The route was to have used a slot borrowed from Tigerair which, given the takeover of the airline, could no longer be guaranteed.
