Tiger Airways will launch flights to Hyderabad and Phnom Penh from Singapore

Tiger Airways, low-cost airline headquartered in Singapore, has two good news for budget conscious travelers to and from Hyderabad (India) and Phnom Penh (Cambodia). By 27 September 2012 Tiger Airways will fly directly between Singapore and Hyderabad five times a week.[1] This new addition marks the sixth Indian destination for Tiger after Bangalore, Chennai, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram and Tiruchirappalli[2]
"The flights to Hyderabad will depart Singapore nightly from Thursday to Sunday and on Tuesdays at 10.30pm. Flights from Hyderabad will fly on Mondays and Wednesdays and from Friday to Sunday. Promotional fares from S$190 are available for sale till July 13 for travel between Sept 27 and Oct 31."[1]
And Tiger Airways daily flights to the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh will start on 1 October 2012. Promotional fares to Phnom Penh are available from 78 Singapore Dollars one-way (Singapore to Phnom Penh) all-inclusive:[3]
“Cambodia has made great strides over the past decade to become both a tremendously popular tourist destination and a business hub in the region. Tiger Airways is glad to be able to contribute to the country's continued growth by further strengthening its international air links, offering travellers more choices of flights to better serve their needs, be it for business or leisure,” said Tiger Singapore’s Managing Director, Stewart Adams. “From soaking up the local sights and sounds with a leisurely stroll down Sisowath Quay, to visiting the famous Silver Pagoda, or even grabbing a bargain at the Central Market or the Russian Market, the city has plenty to offer to its visitors.”[3]

Tiger Airways currently fly to 13 countries: India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Thailand, Vietnam, Phillipines, Taiwan, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia with a fleet of 34 Airbus A320 and uses Changi Airport as its base. Operations held from Singapore Changi Budget Terminal will be moved to Terminal 2 as the budget terminal will be demolished to give way to Changi Terminal 4. This would be great since I have not flew with Tiger Airways since 2009 (except one business occasion) thanks to a super rude ticket counter staff and as they move to Terminal 2, I will have one more option to fly in South East Asia.
