Tiger Airways: “Tiger Singapore will continue to grow capacity at a measured pace through flight frequency increases and this will in turn improve aircraft utilisation. The Group’s associate airlines Mandala and SEAir are expected to operate at a loss for FY12-13. However, the Group remains optimistic about the long-term growth potential of the Indonesian and Philippines air travel markets, and will continue to seek ways to derive greater synergies from these existing partnerships.” Source: Company statement, 30-Oct-2012.
