Tiger Airways: “Going forward, we are capitalising on the strong economic growth and visitor arrivals data out of Singapore by committing to a 40% increase in the Tiger Singapore fleet over the next six months,” Tony Davis, President and CEO. Source: Tiger Airways, 05-Aug-2010.

Tiger Airways: “The improving economic environment in the Asia Pacific region provides the basis for continued expansion of our existing operations. We intend to further grow our business through a proposed partnership with Thai Airways to establish a new low cost airline based in Thailand called Thai Tiger. To support our growth plans, we have an additional 9 new Airbus A320 aircraft scheduled for delivery during the financial year ending 31 March 2011, and we plan to return 2 of our current aircraft to their owner at the end of their respective leases. The fleet will therefore grow by a total of 7 additional aircraft, bringing the fleet size to 26 aircraft by March 2011. In the near term, forward bookings continue to be firm and in line with the recent trend,” Company statement. Source: Tiger Airways, 05-Aug-2010.
