Hungry for Indochina: Tiger Airways bites into Singapore-Phnom Penh flights
The low cost carrier will offer daily trips to the Cambodian capital as part of a more aggressive expansion strategy in Indochina.
"Tiger Airways is growing its paw print in Indochina with daily flights to the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh. The inaugural flight will take off on 1 October 2012. This is Tiger’s first foray into Cambodia, and follows hotly on the heels of the launch of new flights to Hyderabad on 27 September 2012," said Tiger Airways.
"Tiger, one of the leading low cost carriers in Asia, has been steadily growing its network, which now extends to over 35 cities in the region. Earlier in the year, it launched new services to Dhaka, Kochi and Colombo," it added.
“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," he added.
Tiger Airways said promotional fares are now available from SGD 78 one-way (Singapore to Phnom Penh) all-inclusive and USD 60 one-way (Phnom Penh to Singapore) all-inclusive. The fares are available till 18 July, for travel from 1 October 2012 till 31 March 2013.
