Seair’s new CEO, COO
South East Asian Airlines (Seair) International Inc. announced the appointment of Patrick Tan as president and chief operating officer, and Capt. Benjamin Solis as the airline’s chief executive officer following the retirement of Dr. Avelino Zapanta.
Tan rejoined Seair International in 2015 to become the airline’s chief operating officer after his stint with Tigerair Philippines where he held the position of chief strategy officer.
Prior to that, he was chief commercial officer and subsequently chief executive officer of Seair Inc.
Solis, on the other hand, is an aviation veteran, with extensive experience in international airline operations and management, as well as aviation policy.
He has held top positions in eight airlines, four of which he set up, and was United Parcel Service’s (UPS) general manager for air operations in Intra- Asia Hub Asia Pacific Region from 2001 to 2004.
Seair has been operating domestic charter flights with its Dornier 328-100 and Boeing 737-200 cargo freighter.
The airline recently added an Airbus A320 to its fleet for charter flights between Incheon, Korea and Kalibo, the gateway to Boracay Island.
It plans to expand its fleet of turbo-prop and jet aircraft within the next two years.
Iren Dornier, chair of Seair International, said, “We are pleased that Patrick and Ben have accepted the positions. They will be working together to see Seair’s expansion program through.”
Zapanta, a highly respected veteran of the Philippine aviation industry and former president and CEO of Philippine Airlines, ran for a seat in Congress in the May 2016 elections.
“The board thanks Dr. Zapanta for leading the transformation of Seair from an all turbo-prop airline flying domestic routes to a regional airline operating Airbus A320s. The airline has greatly benefited from Dr. Zapanta’s wealth of experience in airline operations and management and civil aviation,” Dornier added.
