Tigerair, leading Singapore-based no-frills airline, announced that it will launch a four-times-weekly service from Singapore to Ipoh. Tigerair will be the only Singapore carrier to offer passengers traveling from Singapore direct access to Malaysia’s fourth largest city and home to both rich heritage footprints and trendy entertainment alternatives. The Ipoh service will be operated by an Airbus 320 aircraft, carrying about 1440 passengers per week. Tickets for the new service which is scheduled to commence on May 29 (subject to regulatory approval) will go on sale from April 20.
Ipoh will be Tigerair’s fourth Malaysian destination which currently comprises Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang. Located in the West Coast of peninsular Malaysia, Ipoh has a reputation as a food haven and offers a smorgasbord of activities that appeal to a wide range of interests. The new service will not only attract tourists looking for a short getaway but also provide a convenient option for passengers who commute between Singapore and Ipoh for business.
