Tiger Airways, a new player in the low-cost carriers sector in the country, will soon be offering daily flights out of Cebu to Singapore, an official said.
Tiger Airways will be flying daily to and from Singapore next month, senior manager of the airline’s corporate communications office Sharon Cheong announced.
Cheong, who recently visited Cebu, believes their cheap fares will benefit both Cebu and Singapore’s tourism industries.
The Singapore-based airline was established in 2004 and currently has a fleet of 26 Airbus A320-family aircraft.
Its operations span 30 destinations in 12 countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
The airline began offering flights out of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport to Singapore since Tuesday.
Cheong said what sets them apart from other carriers is that they don’t want passengers to pay for things they don’t want like extra baggage and other add-ons.
”But we don’t compromise on security, punctuality and passenger safety,” Cheong said.
She said these qualities make traveling “accessible” for those who want to go on business and leisure trips.
Aside from Cebu, Tiger Airways also flies direct to Singapore from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Clark International Airport and Davao.
Cheong said they have special promotional rates for those who book flights from Sept. 8 to 14. Clients who book within the period pay P1,404 for a one-way ticket to Singapore, excluding charges, for travel from Oct. 1 to Dec. 15.
Tiger Airways currently offers Cebu-Singapore flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. (PNA)(scs/EB/gb)
