November 19th, 2008 - 11:32 am ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi  

Tiger Airways launched a free seat promotion for Singapore and Australian routes in order to boost the travels. From now to 25 November 2008, thousands of free seats are being sold and the travel period will be from 1 February 2009 and 30 June 2009.

Passengers flying to and from Singapore will only have to pay airport charges and taxes which will be between S$29 and S$130 each way. The free seat promotion will also be offered by Tiger Airways Australia to celebrate its first birthday.

Tiger believes the market is big enough to take an additional player which their main competitor is AirAsia X on the Perth route. Tiger has been flying the Singapore-Perth route the past two years and now Tiger Airways will be having the Perth route which will be its only connectivity into Australia from this October 25 as it would cease flying the Singapore-Darwin route.

The airline also operates a domestic air service in Australia with a hub in Melbourne and the airline will be increasing its connectivity from Perth to other cities in Australia.

Tiger has also been given rights to increase its once daily flight on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route to five times daily effective Dec 1.
