Tiger gets Philippines permit

Tiger Airways has been granted a 5-year permit to operate international services from the Philippines Civil Aeronautics Board.“We are delighted to have now received confirmation and approval of our application. Tiger Airways is establishing a strong and long term association with Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) at Clark Field, offering more low fare travel to our customers,” said Tiger Airways CEO, Tony Davis. “Passengers can now enjoy the benefits of low fares by booking ahead to secure their seats at fantastic low prices.”

Tiger Airways has received strong demand for low fare travel in the Philippines since the airline’s inaugural flight in April 2005. Due to the strong passenger demand, Tiger Airways increased flight services from just 3 flights per week one year ago to now offering 2 flights every day between Clark-Singapore and a daily flight between Clark-Macau.

Davis added, “Tiger Airways is pleased to be a part of the vibrant development of Clark and has grown to be the largest passenger airline operating at the airport. Tiger Airways will continue to expand its operations at Clark, offering low fare travel to and from the airport in support of its bid to be a major regional aviation hub.”
