Tiger Airways: "Having secured a deal for our continued commitment in the next three years, we look forward to growing our Singapore base. From now till March 2011, we will grow our fleet of 10 aircraft to at least 12, expand our pawprints to more destinations within Asia-Pacific, and grow our team here in Singapore proportionately. We also look forward to even more operational and cost efficiencies when we carry more passengers through Changi’s Budget Terminal, and offering our low, low fares to even more passengers,” Rosalynn Tay, Managing Director.
