Perak Expects More Visitors from Singapore with New Tigerair Flights

Something new is brewing at Tigerair. The airline has just launched a new service schedule specifically for the Singapore-Ipoh route.

The Singapore-Ipoh service will be launched by leading Singapore-based no-frills airline Tigerair on the 29th of May, which will have up to four flights per week.

The new service is to be operated by an Airbus 320 aircraft and it will carry about 1,440 passengers per week, making Tigerair the only Airbus operator to fly directly to Ipoh four times weekly. It is said to boost tourism and create more ease for business travellers from Singapore to Perak.

Ipoh is the fourth largest city in Malaysia and it is home to both rich heritage footprints and trendy entertainment alternatives, making it an ideal holiday destination. The route to Ipoh will be Tigerair’s fourth Malaysian destination, which currently comprises Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang. The new service will help attract tourists looking for a short getaway to enjoy the many attractions Ipoh and Perak have to offer.

Tigeair announced its excitement for this route and they feel that it will help boost tourism between Malaysia and Singapore. They are also the first to operate jet flights to Ipoh. This will mean it more convenient for travellers in Perak to Singapore and they can even connect to others flight destinations in Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas, with other carriers in Singapore Airlines Group.

Tigerair is a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines Group. Other Singapore Airlines Group companies operating out of Singapore are Singapore Airlines, Silk Air and Scoot.
