is to add two Airbus A319s to its Singapore fleet in 2009.
Rosalynn Tay, managing director of Tiger Airways Singapore said “Given the rate of liberalisation occurring in the ASEAN region, Tiger Airways
is quickly taking 2 more brand new aircraft into its Singapore based fleet. The beauty of having smaller A320 family aircraft is that we have a
plane that is 98% the same as our A320s but with less seats and a lower operating cost. This is the perfect aircraft for route development and
ensures that the airline is in the right position to exploit new opportunities as they are presented.”
The A319 has been successfully operated with low fare airlines across the world with significant fleets in service with airlines such as
easyJet and Spirit in the US.
“the A319 is a proven low fare aircraft type. With these additional aircraft we have the opportunity to aggressively expand our
paw print to more destinations with our famous low low fares,” Ms Tay
Tiger Airways is currently recruiting pilots, cabin crew and support staff to be based in Singapore.
