THE newly-rebranded Tigerair is upgrading its destination offerings with a new daily service to Yangon, commencing October 1.
On Mondays and Saturdays, flights depart Singapore at 12.00 to reach at 13.30. Return flights leave Yangon at 14.20 and reach Singapore at 18.45.
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, Yangon-bound services take off at 17.00 and touch down at 18.25. Return flights depart Yangon at 19.05 and arrive in Singapore at 23.35.
Tigerair’s chief commercial officer, Alexander Knigge, said: “Yangon is increasing in popularity as a destination for businessmen from Singapore because of the vast opportunities available today. It is also fast becoming an attractive tourism spot for Singapore residents, drawing a constant stream of visitors to its rich heritage.
“This Singapore-Yangon route will also enable Tigerair to serve both the 50,000-strong (Myanmar) community here, and their family and friends back home who want to stay connected with one another.”
To commemorate the new service, Tigerair is dangling promotional fares for the route starting from S$26 (US$21), excluding tax and fees. Available for sale until August 5, fares are valid for travel between October 1 and November 13.
