Tony Davis, President and CEO of Tiger Airways Holdings, said, “We are pleased that our robust growth and sales performance in the last quarter of 2009 has continued into 2010. These continued strong operating results and strong consumer demand for our low fare product, enable us to continue to expand our fleet and network of services in both Australia and Asia.
“Later this month, we are taking delivery of our 19th aircraft, the second Airbus A320 that we will own rather than lease. The increased fleet will enable us to serve even more destinations. Greater China is a very attractive market that we are keen to expand beyond our current network of 5 destinations, including our recently commenced services to Hong Kong. With increasing numbers of international travellers and the great support that we have enjoyed from passengers, authorities and airports, we are looking to both increase frequencies on current routes and add new destinations. We are currently evaluating the potential to commence services to a number of additional destinations including cities such as Hangzhou, Shantou, Taipei and Xiamen, and hope to finalise plans in the early part of the Year of the Tiger”, said Tony Davis.
Tiger Airways currently flies from Singapore to five Greater China destinations – Guangzhou, Haikou, Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen. To further celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Tiger with our passengers, special discounted fares will be offered on these routes, for bookings between 11 to 17 February.
