There is a lot of money to be made out of MDC (Manado) as there are a lot of diving operators in North Sulawesi (read: Lembeh Strait, and liveaboards), and the non-stop SIN-MDC is far, far, far preferable to taking GA via CGK. It also helped that QR interlined all of the diving equipment to MI.

Now, if only there could be a direct SIN-AMQ, but that may be a bit of a reach.

As for the Philippines, I'm fairly certain that CEB will remain, but since the Philippine government has restricted access to Boracay, KLO may be suspended. But, MI also currently flies SIN-DVO-CEB.
