Tigerair To Expand To Myanmar

Singaporean low cost carrier Tigerair will become the latest airline to operate in Myanmar when it launches flights to the country later this year. Using its 180-seat Airbus A320 jet, the recently rebranded airline plans to link the Southeast Asian city state with Yangon from 1 October 2013.


Flight TR 2826 will operate daily on a split schedule, departing Singapore at 1700 hrs (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays) / 1200 hrs (Mondays and Saturdays) to arrive in Yangon at 1825 hrs (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays) / 1330 hrs (Mondays and Saturdays). The return flight, TR 2827, takes off from Yangon International Airport at 1905 hrs (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays) / 1420 hrs (Mondays and Saturdays) for a 2335 hrs (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays) / 1845 hrs (Mondays and Saturdays) landing back at Changi International Airport.


Myanmar’s recent liberalization and opening has seen a flurry of activities by airlines to meet pent-up demand for business and leisure travel to the country, with Singapore being an important air service hub for Yangon. Tigerair’s entry to the route brings it in competition with regional heavyweight Singapore Airlines, Silkair and Jetstar Asia, as well as Myanmar Airways International and the fledging Golden Myanmar Airlines.
