Tiger Airways has welcomed the decision by regulatory authorities in Singapore to designate it as a 'boutique airline' giving Tiger Airways important access to key cities in Indonesia including Jakarta and Denpasar(Bali).

Rosalynn Tay, Managing Director of Tiger Airways Singapore said, "The aviation authorities in Singapore and Indonesia should be congratulated for agreeing further liberalization between the two countries that will now provide Tiger Airways with the ability to launch services on key routes such as Singapore - Jakarta. By continuing to liberalize the skies both countries are ensuring that their tourism industries and wider economies get a significant boost from additional low fare airline capacity welcome news for the many people who travel between Indonesia and Singapore on a regular basis and the 10,000s of people who jobs depend on the continued expansion of the tourism industries."

As part of the designation Tiger Airways must provide an enhanced product offering which meets the requirements of the boutique airline criteria on all of its routes between Singapore and Indonesia. The Harimau service will provide travellers on such flights with an additional complementary onboard offerings without compromising Tiger Airways low fares.

Tiger Airways is currently finalizing with authorities in both countries flight schedules for its new services to Indonesia and is expected to confirm fares and schedules in the near future.
