Tiger Airways has launched direct services between Singapore and Hyderabad, India and will begin flying to Phnom Penh, Cambodia next Monday.
The inaugural flight to Hyderabad set off yesterday, September 27, arriving in the Indian city at 0040 this morning. This route is now served by the carrier five times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and departs at 2230 from Singapore for a 0040 arrival in Hyderabad. The return leg will leave at 0140 on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and weekends, to touch down in the Lion City at 0850. Earlier this year the carrier began flying to Kerala (see story here), and the addition of Hyderabad brings the total number of Indian destinations served by Tiger Airways to six.
The Phnom Penh route, meanwhile, will be launched on October 1 and will fly daily. From Monday to Thursday, and on Sundays, the service will leave at 0630 and arrive in the Cambodian capital at 0730. Friday's service will be scheduled to take off from Singapore at 1330 and land in Cambodia at 1430, whilst on Saturday the flight will leave the Lion City at 0630 and arrive in Phnom Penh at 0720. Return legs on Monday to Thursday and Sunday will leave Cambodia at 0830 and arrive at 1130, and Friday's takeoff will be at 1530 for a 1830 landing in Singapore. On Saturdays, the return leg will leave at 0820 and arrive at 1120.
The addition of these destinations will mean Tiger Airways' network reaching over 30 cities in the region. Tiger Airways Holdings' chief executive Koay Peng Yen said the carrier expected the new destinations to be well received by business travellers. "Hyderabad is building its reputation for being the technology capital and Phnom Penh has made great strides to become a leading business hub in the region,” he said.
