Tiger Airways now serves Hyderabad, the sixth destination in India for the Singapore-based low-cost airline. The first passenger got the honour of lighting the lamp, while GMR Hyderabad International Airport’s CEO Vikram Jaisinghani, assisted by the Head of Airline and Passenger Development Raveen Pinto, welcomed the crew operating the first flight and presented them with flowers.
- Tiger Airways has launched two new routes from its Singapore (SIN) base, using its single fleet of 180-seat A320s. On 27 September, the low-cost airline began operating five times weekly to Hyderabad (HYD) in southeast India – the airline’s sixth destination in India. This makes Tiger Airways the third foreign low-cost airline to serve Hyderabad after flydubai and Air Arabia. Competition comes from SilkAir’s eight flights a week. On 1 October, Tiger Airways added Cambodia as a country market, when the airline began operating daily to the country capital Phnom Penh (PNH). The route is already operated by SilkAir 12 times weekly and fellow LCC Jetstar Asia with four weekly frequencies.
