- Tigerair Taiwan added two new routes to its network during the last week. On 29 March the LCC began daily flights between Taichung (RMQ) and Macau (MFM). The 755-kilometre sector will be flown by the carrier’s fleet of 10 A320s and faces competition from EVA Air’s existing daily service. While this is Tigerair Taiwan’s first service from Taichung, it already serves Macau from Kaohsiung (daily) and Taipei (four times daily). A day earlier Tigerair Taiwan had begun twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Saturdays) flights between Taipei Taoyuan (TPE) and Jeju (CJU) in South Korea. The 1,065-kilometre route is not served by any other carrier. This is the airline’s third destination in South Korea as it already connects Taipei with Daegu and Busan.
