Tigerair to Launch Four New Routes

Singapore based budget airline Tigerair is adding four new destinations to its network. From 29 October 2013, Tigerair will introduce flights to Lijiang, Chiang Mai, Langkawi and Lombok. Lijiang flights will be 3 times every forthnight, Chiang Mai and Langkawi flights will be 4 times a week and Lombok flights will be 3 times a week.

800-year old city of Lijiang located in Yunnan Province, China is home to the enchanting Old Town, China’s most well-preserved ancient town which is today, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has also earned a reputation for its breathtaking snow mountains and crystal clear streams that add to the city’s splendor.

Chiang Mai is another historic city that boasts a diverse blend of deep Thai traditions and popular culture which charms over five million visitors each year. Chiang Mai’s natural beauty has also garnered it a spot as one of Trip Advisor’s ‘25 Best Destinations in the World’ to visit for 2013.

 Langkawi offers its visitors many opportunities to explore its natural, picturesque landscapes, and provides for a variety of activities for travellers to indulge at their own pace and budget with its wide range of resorts, golf courses, hotels and backpacking accommodation options.

Located two-and-a-half hours by air from Singapore, Lombok, otherwise known as the ‘unspoiled Bali’, has become a welcome respite for busy city dwellers attracted to its well-preserved and uncrowded environment, including the beautiful white sand beaches of Kuta, surfing and scuba diving hot spots in the south, as well as attractions such as Narmada Park and Mayura Park.

Tigerair has recently changed its brand name from Tiger Airways.
“History and nature together play a big role in re-enchanting the seasoned cosmopolitan traveller,” said Mr Alexander Knigge, Chief Commercial Officer at Tigerair, “Our latest offering of four new destinations combines both of these elements particularly well, and stirs the traveller’s imagination. I’m confident that our customers will discover something uniquely special for themselves in one of these offerings, for a truly memorable experience.”

Tigerair will also increase the frequency of its Surabaya-bound flights from 7 to 13 times weekly starting 15 November 2013.
