Rosalynn Tay, Managing Director of Tiger Airways Singapore, said, “Over the last four months we have added 7 routes to our group network including daily flights to Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, a new daily service between Singapore and Jakarta, more services on the ever popular Singapore – Kuala Lumpur route, as well as 4 extra flights a week to Guangzhou bringing the total number of weekly services to 11. Now we are adding Langkawi and Penang to our network to continue to be the low fare leader in Asia.”

Tiger Airways has not yet confirmed the flight schedule to Langkawi and Penang.

Tiger Airways congratulated the governments of Singapore and Malaysia in progressing liberalisation for the benefit of the tourism industry and the economy as a whole.

Ms Tay said, “the governments of Malaysia and Singapore, through liberalizing their skies, are ensuring that the job creating tourism industry and the economy as whole can benefit from growth that is stimulated from true low fare competition. These latest rights will bring more tourists and provide cheaper travel for businesses to assist in growing the economy. Three cheers to liberalisation!”
