OLD BUT RELIABLE. Since cargoes don't complain, it's much typical for cargo airlines to acquire older aircraft since it lowers costs. As long as it is airworthy, there's no reason to panic. Photo from SEAir.

The new aircraft, re-registered with the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines as RP-C4753, is specifically a Boeing 737-2Q8C(A) variant and is now roughly 41 years old. 

According to data from Planespotters.net, International Trans Air Business (ITAB) was the plane's previous operator since 2013; however, it started service with FedEx in October 1979.

SEAir confirmed their acquisition of the 737 on their official Facebook page. RP-C4753 arrived in Clark, Pampanga this week. The aircraft will be joined by SEAir's pioneer 737 freighter it acquired in 2011, RP-C4737.
