Tiger Airways’ first Airbus A319 aircraft arrived in
Singapore on Monday evening straight from the factory in Hamburg.
Rosalynn Tay, managing director of Tiger Airways
Singapore said, “I am so excited about growing our fleet. With
more planes we are able to have even more low low fares for
travellers. The best thing about this plane is that it 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.
Rosalynn Tay said, “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.”
