Tiger Airways and Scoot sign MoU for deeper cooperation

Tiger Airways announced (01-Oct-2012) it signed a MoU with Scoot which will see the airlines develop deeper cooperation through marketing joint itineraries. Tiger Airways CEO Koay Peng Yen said, “The joint itineraries and new services that we will be rolling out will greatly expand the travel options for both Tiger and Scoot customers.” Scoot CEO Campbell Wilson said, “This is an exciting development. 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.” The airlines currently both operate from Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2. The initial trial of the operation will see customers able to purchase flight itineraries originating from Australia to destinations in Southeast Asia. Passengers will be issued a single ticket for their flights. A later trial will allow customers to purchase flight itineraries originating in Southeast Asia. [more - original PR]
