Tiger Airways conducts cargo trials
Singapore, 2 February 2010: Tiger Airways Singapore today announced trials in cargo handling services between Singapore and five of its existing destinations - Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Penang.
Rosalynn Tay, Managing Director of Tiger Airways Singapore, said, “The addition of cargo services will create an additional source of ancillary revenue. It is part of our strategy to increase our aircraft capacity utilisation and route profitability without compromising safety, security and punctuality.
“The trials will help us observe and finetune our cargo operations, before a larger scale implementation across our network.” added Rosalynn Tay. “Within five years of its birth, Tiger has expanded its territory to 33 destinations in the region. Having carried over 11 million passengers, the cub has grown into a big cat and is now ready to carry cargo as well. I am delighted that our paw print has grown in so many ways across the region.”
