Tiger Air launches Chinese site

Tiger Airways is launching its Chinese language website in response to demand from China customers for more information on its China - Singapore flights and other routes.

With the launch, Chinese language users will be able to obtain details of Tiger Airways flights and promotions in Chinese on Tiger Airways website www.tigerairways.com/cn. Booking is done online with payment through China international credit cards. Tiger Airways is also reviewing other ways to make it more convenient for travelers from Southern China to travel with the airline and will be announcing more details soon.

“Tiger Airways has enjoyed phenomenal growth from the Chinese market since launching our Singapore-China routes in April this year and it is timely to launch this website. To celebrate the launch of the website we intend to announce several exciting promotional offers in the coming weeks. For example, we are offering fares starting from as low as RMB 208 (SGD39.98) for one way flights from China to Singapore until end October. So make sure you visit the website www.tigerairways.com/cn regularly to obtain the latest updates,” said Tiger Airways Chief Commercial and Marketing Officer, Rosalynn Tay.

Tay advised Chinese customers to book early and to do it on line if they want to get the best deals. Tiger Airways fares are structured on a tiered basis and prices go up according to demand and supply. So fares are lower if customers book early as more seats are available but move up when more seats get booked. Customers should also travel on weekdays and non-peak periods if they can to enjoy a better deal.

Tay also encouraged Chinese travelers to look at flying to other Tiger Airways destinations beyond the China-Singapore route to enjoy the best travel deals. Tiger Airways currently offers fantastic low fares from Singapore to its other destinations in the Asia-Pacific region, including Australia and Thailand. Details of flight schedules and fares as well as bookings for travel can be made at www.tigerairways.com/cn.

Tiger Airways is Singapore’s largest and most popular low fare airline, serving seven countries across Asia-Pacific (Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, China, the Philippines, Australia and Indonesia). This was confirmed in May 2006 when Tiger Airways was the only Low Cost Carrier to win an award from the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) as a top 10 airlines at Changi Airport by passenger carriage in 2005.

In April 2006 Tiger Airways increased its fleet to six new Airbus A320 aircraft to serve new flight services between Singapore and Guangzhou, Haikou and Shenzhen. Tiger Airways is expected to take delivery of three brand new Airbus A320 aircraft at the end of this year and will have the largest fleet among Singapore-based low cost carriers. Another three A320 is expected to join the fleet in 2007.

Tiger Airways has carried the most number of passengers amongst budget airlines in Singapore and is expecting to carry its 1.5 Millionth passenger soon. The airline is well on target to hit its second millionth passenger by this year end or possibly sooner.
