Tiger Airways Flight Guide
Tiger Airways History
Founded at the end of 2003, Tiger Airways, which runs under the simpler title of “Tigerair” is an airline that has its principle hub at Singapore Changi Airport. It is a low-cost alternative to the city-state’s more esteemed airline clientele.
Tigerair is so named for the once-prevalent animal that is now synonymous with Southeast Asian economies. The airline operates 24 aircraft that serve 28 destinations. Most destinations are within the region. Tigerair is a lot like a franchise, and several other Tigerairs exist but are not owned by nor are they owners of Singapore’s Tigerair.
Why fly Tigerair?
The main reason to fly with Tigerair is because, despite being a low-cost airline, it has won awards for being the best of its kind. Normally, low-cost airline cut every corner they can in order to offer a passable product that addresses client’s preference for simple transport without all the bells and whistles.
There is no frequent flyer program with Tigerair. However the airline is constantly seeking out deals with third-party organizations such as travel sites, hotels, restaurants, car rental companies and more. As such, passengers who book with Tigerair can combine deals via their website to save a fair amount of cash when reserving non-airline services.
Tigerair Flight Destinations
Tigerair does not fly anywhere that surpasses 5 hours of flight time. Those countries to which Tigerair serves multiple cities are China, Australia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Vietnam and Thailand. It also provides service to cities in Cambodia, Bangladesh, Burma, the Maldives, Taiwan and Sri Lanka.
The company does not have any special deals with other airlines. Where it lacks in partnerships, it makes for with low fares. Those who fly Tigerair are not necessarily interested in rewards programs or special perks for flying more—they want a basic service to get from A to B.
On Board Tigerair
It should not be a surprise, then, that Tigerair does not offer a great range of on-board services that are not paid for. It runs a buy-on-board program like all low-cost airlines are wont to do. The program is called Tiger Bites, and sounds ironic to Western ears. One can purchase snacks and drinks, but it might behoove passengers to pack their own meals before boarding.
As for in-flight entertainment, one ought to bring a book. There is not much in terms of in-flight entertainment besides Tiger Tales, which is the magazine that one finds in the seatback pocket. There are no drop-down TVs, and there is no Business Class upgrade. One can buy duty free items on board if they want.
Business Class Flights
As said, there is no Business Class upgrade. Nor is there Economy plus or premium. All the seats are the same, and none of them have personal screens. The reason Tigerair has been awarded for its service is for the slightly greater pitch and legroom offered, and for the efficiency of their system and professionalism of their staff.
Tigerair does not operate any lounges either. Some airports that the airline serves have generic lounges that passengers can pay entry to. These typically have more comfortable chairs, private washrooms and private food service.
The website is www.tigerair.com. There is a form to book flights, and the menu is easy to navigate and lists all the information about the company and their routes. There is a dedicated “Special Deals” section that has periodic updates.
