Cheap flights to Ningbo from Singapore by Tigerair

Singapore based budget carrier Tigerair will start budget flights to Ningbo from Singapore and become the only airline flying directly from Singapore to Ningbo. With the addition of Singapore - Ningbo flights, Tigerair will be flying to 8 destinations in Greater China from Singapore.

Ningbo (宁波)  is one of China's oldest cities, with a history dating back to 4800 BC.  The city is located in the northeast of Zhejiang province and is an especially popular destination among business and leisure travelers alike, thanks to its bustling port and excellent connectivity to regional Chinese cities. Reputed as a commercial seaport city dating back to Tang and Song dynasties, Ningbo has established itself as a key exporter of electrical products, industrial tools, textiles, and food. Today, Ningbo ranks second only to Shanghai in terms of the amount of cargo handled, with exports totaling nearly US$ 40 billion annually.

Ningbo has a modern and extensive infrastructure and provides easy access to other major cities in the region such as Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Wenzhou and Nanjing. Ningbo’s high-speed railway lines, the Ningbo-Taizhou-Wenzhou (Yong Tai Wen) Railway and Hangyong High Speed Railway connects Ningbo with Zhejiang’s two other major cities, Wenzhou and Hangzhou, via bullet train. Travelling at speeds of up to 350 kilometres per hour, commuting between Ningbo and Hangzhou takes a mere 26 minutes today.

Free bus shuttle services will be available from 27 December 2013, between Ningbo Lishe International Airport and the East Railway Station located downtown in the city. Travelers can hence access bullet train services to and from Beijing, Fuzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, Wenzhou and Xiamen.
