Starting from 24 January 2014, Tigerair will operate four weekly flights between Singapore and Male Airport, main international airport in the Maldives.
Tigerair will be the only budget airline offering direct Singapore – Maldives flights. AirAsia X also recently announced flights to Maldives from Kuala Lumpur.
“If you haven’t visited Maldives, you really owe it to yourself to make that trip because you will love the place,” said Mr Alexander Knigge, Chief Commercial Officer at Tigerair, “It is a perfect holiday destination regardless of whether you are taking a honeymoon, a family vacation or treating yourself to a much needed break from your busy life. We are very excited to be the first and only no-frills airline to fly to Maldives from Singapore.”
Scoot Airlines has postponed the launch of their new routes from Singapore to Qingdao and Shenhang, China. The original launch date was November 27, 2012, but has been pushed back to January 11, 2013.
The low-cost airline was forced to postpone these flights as it has not yet obtained regulatory approval for the new routes.
Scoot has offered a $50 SGD travel voucher to passengers affected by the cancelled flights.
Singapore’s low-cost Scoot Airline has announced it will be flying to two more cities in China: Shenyang and Qingdao. The new routes are scheduled to begin on November 20, 2012.
One-way promotional fares start from just $98 SGD including taxes and surcharges. Additional fees will apply for checked luggage, on board meals, entertainment system, and advance seat selection.
Having debuted in June 2012, Scoot is a relative newcomer to the competitive budget airline business. Scoot already flies to Tianjin in China, as well as Sydney, Gold Coast, and Bangkok. It will also will launch new routes to Taipei and Tokyo this fall.
Scoot, the new low-cost wing of Singapore airlines, has revealed its third destination – Tianjin, China. Fights from Singapore to Tianjin will begin sometime in August 2012.
Scoot will be the first airline to offer direct service between Singapore and Tianjin and will offer 4 flights per week.
At the announcement, CEO Campbell Wilson said: “Scoot will also connect Tianjin through one of the world’s biggest air hubs, Singapore, offering connections to over 100 cities. We can’t wait to give people in Singapore more opportunity to Scoot away for Tianjin’s famed goubuli baozi and its many other attractions.”
