AirPhil Express to launch daily flights to Singapore

Airphil Express (APX), the low-cost carrier of tycoon Lucio Tan, has
increased the flight frequency for its Singapore-Manila route from an
initial thrice weekly to daily.

In a statement, APX said it was recently awarded an additional 500
seats for its Singapore-Manila service due to strong market demand.
The airline will operate at Changi Airport's Budget Terminal 4, with
its maiden flight scheduled on October 27, 2010.

"The growing demand for low cost air travel to exciting destinations
such as Singapore is the main factor in our decision to fly the
Singapore-Manila route as our first regional offering," said Maria
Java, vice president for marketing and media at APX.

"The end of business day departure out of Manila at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
departure out of Singapore has been well received by our markets both
in the Philippines and Singapore. It allows for both business and
leisure travelers to have a full day of activity and then relax while
in transit," Java added.

Singapore travel agencies that have signed up to offer APX have
enjoyed brisk sales in its early selling phase. Ongoing seat sales
offer introductory promo rates starting at SGD 70 (P1,800).
