DAVAO CITY, Davao del Sur, Philippines — A new airline company will soon service the Davao City-Singapore route, Regina Rosa Tecson, head of the City Tourism Operations Office, announced in a text message to reporters on Saturday.

The airline, Scoot TigerAir, will use an Airbus 320 aircraft to service the route three times a week, according to Tecson

The airline is a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, which used to serve the same route before the pandemic.

According to Tecson, the new service will allow the economy to slowly open up, particularly the tourism industry which has been heavily hit by the pandemic.

“We’re happy because we had prepared our tourism workers for this eventuality by making sure they are fully vaccinated, thanks to the support of our private tourism industry partners,” she said.

According to its report, the city government aims to vaccinate about 40,000 essential workers, including those in the tourism industry. So far, about 15,000 of them have already had their full shots.

The vaccination program for these workers was done mostly at the Waterfront Insular Hotel, a facility owned by the family of Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian.
