Tiger Airways ready to take up Malaysias offer to fly to new low cost terminal at KLIA

Travel News Asia 28 October 2005

Tiger Airways is planning to take up the offer by the Malaysian operator of the new low cost carrier (LCC) terminal located at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to use the LCC facility.

We are very keen to fly between Singapore and Malaysia and will definitely take up the offer from Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to use the LCC terminal if we receive permission from the Malaysian aviation authorities to do so. We are confident Singapore and Malaysian travelers would benefit tremendously from our low fares and reliable flight services. This would be a major boost to air travel and business connectivity between Singapore and Malaysia, said Tiger Airways CEO, Tony Davis.

Davis was referring to news reports that MAHB managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Bashir Ahmad had invited all airlines that fall under the budget carrier category to use the new LCC terminal facility. MAHB is a government linked company that manages and operates all the airports in Malaysia.

The KLIA LCC terminal will be five times larger than the new LCC terminal at Singapores Changi Airport, which can handle around two million passengers a year.
