Now you can fly to Asia-Pacific cities at a one-way airfare of Rs 9,999 from Bangalore to Bali, Jakarta, Manila and Perth with Tigerair.

The Singapore-based no-frills airline recently launched special fares as part of the celebrations following its completing 10 years in the airline industry. 

The airline group is also relaunching its Rs 10 round-trip airfare to Singapore from five Indian destinations — Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kochi and Trichy. The actual round-trip will cost Rs 7,499, including taxes with bookings opening from October 6-12 this year for travel during the Deepavali season.

Addressing the Indian media earlier this week, Robert Yang, Commercial Director, Tigerair, said that with the phenomenal response during the launch of the special fare during September this year, the airline has decided to relaunch to tap the festive season

Special fare

“The special fare launched during September 15-21 had over 18 per cent ticket sales; to encourage people from India to travel to Singapore, we will be relaunching the special fare offer. As Singapore, is a strong market for the South Indians, we want to provide the best at the lowest cost,” Yang added.

However, Robert Yang said that passengers pay for services that they want as there are additional costs included. “Tigerair flies mainly at midnight from Indian cities where passengers have already had their dinner before arriving at the airport.  We do not want to unnecessarily burden our passengers by collecting more and forcing them to eat at odd hours when they are flying,” he added.

 Tigerair is also providing Tigerconnect for passengers transiting at Changi Airport in Singapore where a sight-seeing trip is organised by airport authorities without a travel visa.

The offer is for passengers whose transit time is more than eight hours where they need not clear arrival immigration and retrieve luggage as it is taken care of by the airlines. Passengers can simply collect their boarding passes for the onward flight and carry on with the Singapore trip.
