Tigerair Taiwan targets South Korea

Tigerair Taiwan has begun four times weekly flights to the South Korean destination

“Daegu, here we go” as the sign says. Tigerair Taiwan has begun four times weekly flights to the South Korean destination competing directly with t’way air.

  • Tigerair Taiwan has expanded its network with the addition of Daegu (TAE) in South Korea. Launched on 5 May, the LCC will operate four times weekly on the 1,395-kilometre route from Taipei Taoyuan (TPE) using its A320s. The airport pair is already served by t’way air with thrice-weekly flights. Last year Daegu Airport saw traffic growth of almost 32% to just over two million passengers. The LCC now serves 12 destinations non-stop from Taipei, half of which are in Japan, with a 13th (Sendai – also in Japan) set to start in late June. South Korea joins five other country markets already served; China (Dayong), Macau, Malaysia (Kota Kinabalu), Singapore and Thailand (Bangkok).
