Singapore-based low-cost carrier Tiger Airways is to increase its frequency on its flights from Changi to Jakarta from daily to twice daily from later this year.
Rosalynn Tay, managing director of Tiger Airways Singapore, said: “We are pleased to be awarded additional rights to the popular Jakarta-Singapore route. With twice the number of flights and choice of timings, we will be even better armed to lead the low-fare revolution to the benefit of consumers.”
At a speech last week in Singapore to Changi Airport officials, the country’s Second Minister for Foreign Affairs Raymond Lim noted that the Singapore-Jakarta sector has grown by 20 percent in the past year. More generally, he said, low-cost carriers have raised flight and passenger numbers at Changi by more than 50 per cent since 2008.
