MANILA, Philippines - South East Asian Airlines (Seair), the Philippines’ premier leisure airline, will now fly to Macau daily from Clark starting May 27, 2011.

“The Clark-Macau route is SEAIR’s third international destination under the Tiger Airways partnership,” said Seair president Avelino Zapanta.  “The new route offers similar ultra low fares as our Singapore and Hong Kong flights and serves as an important link between the Philippines and China for tourists, business travelers, and Filipinos working abroad.”

Clark-Macau seats are on sale now at www.FlySeair.com and www.tigerairways.com at a special introductory fare of as low as US$31 or P1,340 per way for travel on May 27 to Oct. 29, 2011.

Macau offers vacationers a unique mix of Western and Eastern influences through its baroque churches, Art Deco buildings, and Chinese temples.  In 2005, the Historic Center of Macau, located in the center of the peninsula, was named a UNESCO World Heritage site.  It consists of historic residential, religious, and public Portuguese and Chinese architectural legacies including the A-Ma Temple, Senado Square, Dom Pedro V Theater, Na Tcha Temple, Casa Garden, the Old Protestant Cemetery and the old headquarters of the British East Indies Company.

In recent years, Macau has welcomed on its reclaimed land a number big name casinos, including the Venetian and MGM Grand from the United States, making itself known in Asia as the “Las Vegas of the East.”  But amid these modern developments, Macau still maintains its old world charm albeit with its own characteristic multicultural fusion and invites visitors to immerse in it whether through the partaking of Portuguese delicacies like caldo verde (potato and greens in soup) and bacalhau (salt cod) in Taipa village, seeing the giant statues of Matsu, Goddess of the Sea, and Kun Iam, Goddess of Mercy, or simply admiring the view atop the Macau Tower.

The Holy House of Mercy on Senado Square, Also known as Santa Casa de Misericordia, is one of the most prominent buildings on Senado Square at the Historic Center of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage site.  It was founded in 1569 and was the first western-style medical clinic in Asia and the oldest social institution in Macau.

Seair departs from Clark to Macau daily on May 27 until June 30, 2011 at 2 p.m. and flies from Macau to Clark daily at 4:25 p.m.  From July 1 to Oct. 29, 2011, Clark-Macau flights will be at 2:25 p.m., while Macau-Clark flights are at 4:50 p.m.

The Seair-Tiger Airways Partner Airline Program allows Seair to distribute its seats through Tiger Airways’ established Internet booking system, www.tigerairways.com.  Seair is the first Tiger Airways partner airline in the Asia Pacific region.

Seair is the Philippines’ second oldest airline, and is the first airline based in Clark.  It has the reputation of having pioneered commercial flights to the country’s fastest growing tourist destinations including Boracay, Batanes and northern Palawan.  Now in its 16th year of operation, Seair is expanding its reach regionally with its current jet services to Singapore and Hong Kong.  For information, visit www.FlySeair.com.
