SEAir To Take Additional Planes

Mon Feb 27, 2006 10:20 pm

Philippines-based operator SEAir is set to take delivery of its third and fourht Dornier 328-100 turboprop after the first two received last year boosted operations above expectations.

FYI, SEAir is a domestic operator, which serves mainly tourist destinations within the archipel.

I flew 4 segments with them last month. 2 short hops on their 19 seat LET 410 UVP-E, and 2 on their 32 seat Dornier 328.
The first flight was a short hop from CRK-MNL. Weather was rainy and windy and the LET 410 hopped around quite a bit. This was my lady's 3rd flight in her life, the first 2 being on A320's, so she was very frightened, and did get a bit sick before we landed in MNL. She was very relieved to see the Dornier was bigger when we were boarding the next plane. Much smoother flight, as the Dornier is presurized and could fly over the weather. It was all sunshine when we landed at MPH (Caticlan)
South East Asian Airlines, aka Seair, also has one Dornier 24ATT amphibian, 10-15 seater available for charters. Would love to fly on that one someday!
