Tiger Airways increases Singapore-Kuala Lumpur flights 400%


SINGAPORE (September 25, 2008) – Tiger Airways today announced that on December 1, 2008, Tiger Airways will be the first out of the blocks to offer the next low fare step by operating up to 5 flights a day between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. This will result in more than 40,000 seats a month each way, or the equivalent to 480,000 extra seats a year on the route.

Rosalynn Tay, managing director of Tiger Airways Singapore, said, “This is a huge milestone in Asian low fare aviation, and at Tiger Airways we’re very proud to be leading the way once again. Working at Tiger Airways is living the low-fare dream. Where else in the world could I make almost 500,000 people a year so happy with so many low fares, at such great times? This huge increase in flights between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore means one thing for travellers – lots more Tiger Airways’ famous low fares.”

Not only is Tiger’s low price right for everyone, but regular flights throughout the day from early in the morning to late at night mean that there is a wide choice of departure times making Tiger Airways a viable alternative for travelers from all walks of life.

Rosalynn Tay said, “No matter who you are or what you do, you will find a flight that suits you at the best low price from first thing in the morning to late at night. Tiger Airways will get you there on time with lots of cash to spare. So whether you are a businessman, a grandmother visiting your relatives or a hip young thing looking for adventure, our best deals and most convenient flights will always be found at http://www.tigerairways.com/ .”

Tiger Airways would not be able to announce its revolutionary increase in capacity between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur without the significant achievements of both governments concerned.

Rosalynn Tay said, “I would like to congratulate the forward thinking of the Singapore and Malaysian governments and aviation authorities in their progression of a liberalization agenda that benefits both economies. By meeting this liberalization milestone ahead of the ASEAN roadmap, both countries are acknowledged around the world in a job well done. The customer is the big winner here. ”

Tiger Airways is looking forward to the next stage of liberalization to other cities in Malaysia, as well as encouraging other countries in the region to follow Singapore and Malaysia’s lead.

Tiger Airways is also introducing payment in Ringgit on its website for the convenience of its Malaysian customers.
