Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 22 February 2010

Resorts World Sentosa and Tiger Airways Singapore are working together to operate a chartered aircraft dedicated to flying overseas guests to Resorts World Sentosa, Singapores first integrated resort. Yet to be named, the private flight service, operated by Tiger Airways, will have an aircraft operating as a dedicated charter service for Resorts World Sentosa, transporting guests between Singapore and other cities around the region.

Under the signed Memorandum of Understanding, Resorts World Sentosa will take over the lease of the aircraft, while pilots and cabin crew of Tiger Airways operate the dedicated plane, which will ply Tiger Airways existing region-wide network, as well as short haul routes within Asia and Australasia. Operations are scheduled to commence late 2010.

Ms Rosalynn Tay, Managing Director of Tiger Airways Singapore, said, We are proud to partner Resorts World Sentosa in bringing more visitors to Singapore. This is a real alliance with real benefits to both partners. While Tiger Airways gets a new revenue stream and reduced costs, Resorts World Sentosa gets a cost-effective solution to bringing more customers to Singapores most exciting new destination.

Ms Liang Wern Ling, Director of Destination Sales, Resorts World Sentosa, added, We promised Singapore that Resorts World Sentosa will bring tourism to the country and reinvent its tourism landscape. We are creating our own airline with this first aircraft, which shows our commitment to bringing the economic benefits to Singapore.
