Tigerair to fly to Ipoh from May 29; tickets on sale from April 20

SINGAPORE - Budget carrier Tigerair will start flying four times a week from Singapore to Ipoh on May 29.

Tickets go on sale from April 20.

The airline's chief executive officer, Lee Lik Hsin said: "Tigerair already enjoys a significant presence in Malaysia and this addition will help meet demand for both leisure and business travel between Singapore and Malaysia."

Tigerair which works closely with Singapore Airlines' long-haul budget carrier Scoot, will time its flights to allow passengers greater connectivity to other destinations via Singapore.

The Tigerair-Scoot partnership offers travellers accessibility to a combined network of over 46 destinations across Asia and Australia, Tigerair said. Ipoh will be airline's fourth Malaysian destination after Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang.
