What brings you to Laoag?

Laoag is becoming one of the fastest growing cities in northern Luzon in terms of investment, business activities, job opportunities, and tourism. Last year, Ilocos Norte received 680,000 domestic and foreign tourists during Holy Week alone. We see Laoag as the gateway to the many beautiful tourist destinations as well as historical and cultural sites in the north.

SEAIR starts flying in and out of Laoag daily starting today. Manila-Laoag flights are scheduled at 1:00 p.m. and Laoag-Manila flights at 3:00 p.m.

Are there plans to make Laoag a regional or domestic hub?

There are no plans for the moment but we are just as excited to be part of the growth in Laoag. Our main service hub right now is based in Clark Airport, and maintains our fleet of five Airbus 320 and 319 aircraft. The next hub to open will be in Manila.

How will you compete with more established airlines that have been flying in and out of Laoag prior to SEAIR's arrival?

We always focus on customer service - providing our passengers a most pleasant and convenient flight experience, and offering very competitive fares.

With Laoag being the center for business and trading in the province and its enviable proximity to a variety of attractions in the region, SEAIR is targeting the MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions) market as well, which is becoming a new focus in the city with the establishment of international-standard road system and infrastructures, such as the Laoag International Airport.

The training of our pilots and cabin crew are at par with international standards, which enables us to provide passengers with the best inflight experience.

What is the competitive advantage of SEAIR over other airlines?

SEAIR has been a pioneering airline in building choice destinations across the country and the first to be ISO-certified. We have helped develop Boracay and northern Palawan into major tourist destinations.

We will continue our pioneering legacy by providing safe and enjoyable flight experiences, increasing direct flights to more destinations, and offering the lowest fares possible. Currently, SEAIR has the most number of flights in and out of Clark.
