Seair International looking to launch long-haul routes in the future

Seair International is in talks with potential partners as it seeks to launch long-haul services in the future to the US, Middle East and Europe, according to reports by Rappler.com and Business Mirror. One of the airline’s owners, Nick Gitsis, said, “For our international component, we are looking for the right opportunity to fly there. But it's not going to happen tomorrow. Let’s see in a couple of years. That’s what we intend to do.” Seair International is a spin-off unit of Seair and plans to take over Seair’s smaller routes which are unserved by larger airlines in the Philippines. The airline is awaiting the issuance of its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) before its launch in 4Q2012.
