Low-cost Tiger fleet expanding

Tiger Airways has taken delivery of its seventh new Airbus A320 and is scheduled to take delivery of its eighth and ninth new aircraft by the end of the calendar year.“Tiger Airways has expanded significantly during 2006 with passengers numbers jumping more than 70% at our half year mark. We’ve also added new services between Singapore and South China this year, plus increased frequencies on several of our routes between Singapore and Thailand. In addition to the new Clark-Cebu and Clark-Davao routes operated in the Philippines by our Philippine partner SEAir, we will be announcing more new routes soon,” said Tiger Airways CEO, Tony Davis.

Davis added, “Tiger Airways has a winning formula because we adhere strictly to the low cost carrier model which has a proven track record in the US and Europe. At the same time, our shareholders and management team have proven expertise in operating successful low fare airlines. Tiger Airways is poised to lead the LCC industry in Asia with its successful launch of innovative marketing initiatives such as its “Luggage Upsize” and “Flight Combo” services.

Tiger Airways currently serves 15 cities in seven countries - Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, China, the Philippines, Australia and Indonesia.
