Singapore-based budget carrier Tiger Airways has launched its boardmefirst service, enabling passengers to jump the queue at the boarding gate.
Passengers who opt for priority boarding, however, need to pay S$6 (US$4.32) per flight sector.
“It is the result of our Customer Task Force efforts to find out directly from customers what they want,” said Rosalynn Tay, managing director of Tiger Airways Singapore. “One of their suggestions was to provide priority boarding the low-cost way, without requiring them to chalk up expensive miles.”
The boardmefirst service joins the airline’s ancillary conveniences such as Luggage Upsize, Seat Selector and Sports Equipment Check in, which are additional sources of revenue.
