Tiger Airways launches biggest summer schedule from Singapore
Tiger Airways will offer its biggest ever network of seats from Singapore for the forthcoming summer 2009 schedule, which runs from 29 March to 24 October 2009.
The schedule includes the recently launched daily flights to Kota Kinabalu, a new daily service between Singapore and Jakarta, increased services on the Singapore–Kuala Lumpur route, as well as four extra flights a week to Guangzhou bringing the total number of weekly services to 11.
Rosalynn Tay, managing director Tiger Airways Singapore, commented, “With these new destinations travellers have even more choice of places to visit. Across our two airlines in Asia and Australia, Tiger Airways will commence a total of seven new routes this month with the launch of services from Singapore to Kota Kinabalu and Jakarta, together with the start of the airline’s second Australian base in Adelaide. Not only is this fantastic news for travellers, it also assists the tourism industry and provides a welcome boost to local economies in these difficult economic conditions.
“We are hopeful that we can secure even more rights from regulators to offer more affordable fares to an even wider range of destinations in the near future as more and more countries continue the trend of regional liberalisation,” Tay added.
