Cebgo, Inc., operating as Cebgo (stylized as cebgo) is a low-cost airline serving the Philippines. It is the successor company to SEAIR, Inc., which previously operated as South East Asian Airlines and Tigerair Philippines. It is now owned by JG Summit, the parent company of Cebu Pacific which operates the airline. Its main base has been transferred from Clark International Airport (formerly Diosdado Macapagal International Airport), Angeles to Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Metro Manila. On April 30, 2017, Cebgo planned to move out from Manila and transfer its main base to Mactan-Cebu International Airport in Cebu City because NAIA has already maxed out its capacity.[3]


The airline was established as South East Asian Airlines (SEAir) in 1995 and started operations in the same year. However, its franchise was granted by the Congress of the Philippines only on May 13, 2009 through Republic Act No. 9517.

The airline received its corporate registration from the Securities and Exchange Commission on 25 March 1995 mainly to operate aircraft leasing, chartering and a few domestic scheduled flights. In May 1995, the airline was registered with the Clark Special Economic Zone to operate services in the Clark-Manila-Subic area and to tourist destinations throughout the Luzon and the Visayas regions. It continued expanding its routes and opened a hub in Zamboanga City in 2002.

On 29 September 2006, a deal was announced in which Singapore-based Tigerair would enter a commercial and operational tie-up with SEAir from February 2007.[4] The tie-up was finally approved in 2008 after protest from four other Philippine airlines. However, due to the unfavorable operating environment, the plan was put into hiatus. Tigerair and SEAir revisited the partnership plan in 2010 and it was officially launched on 16 December 2010. Seats on flights operated by SEAir using two aircraft leased from Tigerair were sold and marketed by Tigerair for SEAir. Shortly after SEAir and Tigerair launched the partnership, Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, Zest Airways and Air Philippines sent a letter of protest to the Department of Transportation and Communications claiming the partnership between SEAir and Tigerair was illegal and requested the authorities to stop flights operating under the partnership.[5] The Tigerair-SEAir partnership began with international flights from Clark to Singapore, Hong Kong, and Macau. It was then expanded to domestic destination from Manila (NAIA) to Davao and Cebu (slated to launch in July 2011). However, the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) ordered the sales of the domestic flight under the partnership to be suspended on 20 May 2011, after receiving complaints from Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific. Since the ban from CAB was lifted in October 2011, the planned domestic flight (between Manila (NAIA) to Davao and Cebu) was scheduled to start in May 2012.[6]

In February 2011, Tiger Airways Holdings Ltd., parent company of Tigerair, purchased 32.5% shares of SEAir Inc. They increased their shares to 40% in August 2012.

In December 2012, CAB approved SEAir's application to form SEAir International, a full-service airline focusing on domestic and international leisure destinations and an independent operation from SEAir Inc., which was rebranded as Tigerair Philippines; "The two carriers have some common shareholders but it is not a unit of the other. Seair-I was formed to take on the turboprop division [of SEAir Inc.] which was excluded in the share sale with Tigerair."[7] SEAir Inc. was renamed Tigerair Philippines Inc. on 7 June 2013.

In January 2014, Cebu Pacific announced that it was acquiring the entirety of Tigerair Philippines for US$14.5 million by buying all shares.[8]

In May 2015, for the fourth time, Tigerair Philippines was rebranded as Cebgo to reflect the relationship between Tigerair Philippines as a wholly owned subsidiary airline of its parent company Cebu Pacific.[9]

By October 2015, Cebgo returned 5 Airbus A320s to Cebu Pacific and thereafter operated a pure turboprop fleet of ATR 72-500s

In January 2016. Cebu Pacific. Cebgo's Parent Company. Announced it will order 16 ATR 72-600s at the Paris Air Show. This is to meet the growing demand of inter-island services.[10]

In February 2018. After a crowdsourcing campaign launched in 2017. Cebu Pacific announced it was flying to Batanes. The most requested destination in the campaign. They will use Cebgo's ATR72 for the route. The route's inaugural flight was on March 25, 2018.[11]
