Singapore-based low cost airlines,Tiger Airways Singapore and Scoot,
signed a Memorandum of Understanding toward deep and wide-ranging
The initial phase of this partnership will see each carrier marketing
joint itineraries between Phuket, Ho Chi Minh City and Kuala Lumpur,
destinations served by Tiger; and Sydney and Gold Coast, served by
Scoot. Customers may purchase a single itinerary for travel from
Australia, via Singapore, to Tiger’s destinations.
“This is an exciting development,” CEO of Scoot, Campbell Wilson.
“Both carriers operate highly complementary networks, with Scoot
focusing on medium-long haul routes of five or more hours, and Tiger
focusing on shorter-haul journeys. Both airlines operate side-by-side
at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2, and share a common philosophy
of offering fuss-free service at unbeatable value.”
“With Tiger’s move to our new den at Changi Airport Terminal 2, it’s
the perfect time to leverage the strength of our networks for
customers’ benefits,” Tiger Airways Group CEO Koay Peng Yen. “Tiger
Singapore operates up to 90 flights daily. The joint itineraries and
new services that we have rolled out will greatly expand travel
options for both Tiger and Scoot customers.”
As the cooperation deepens in future, there could be a need for
applications for anti-trust immunity, and this will be sought from the
relevant regulatory authorities at the appropriate time as required.

Airways is an associate of Temasek Holdings, which is the holding
company of Singapore Airlines, the parent company of Scoot. Singapore
