Changi hosts low-cost carriers

More low-cost carrier (LCC) flights are being introduced at Singapore’s Changi Airport as passengers seek cheaper travel options in the region.

Two services have joined the list in December with the introduction of Jetstar Asia's flights to Indonesia and Tigerair to India.

Jetstar Asia has introduced a new three-a-week schedule to Indonesia’s PLM (Sumatra) from Changi. It is the only LCC service flying direct between the two cities and is operated by Airbus A320. The carrier also recently launched service between Changi and Pekanbaru, also on Sumatra.

The other Singapore-based LCC, Singapore Airlines subsidiary Tigerair, has launched a new Changi – North India service flying to LKO (Lucknow), the airline’s sixth Indian destination. The three-a-week service also uses the A320 aircraft.

Changi has seen a significant increase in its LCC traffic in recent months, which the airport says has been brought about by more passengers opting to travel by low-cost airlines following a period of depressed demand.

In September, Changi reported its highest ever passenger figures achieved in a single quarter at 14.3m passengers.  www.changiairport.com     www.jetstar.com     www.tigerair.com
