Jetstar faces fiercer competition, Tiger Airways ups Singapore-Haikou flights
The route between Haikou and Singapore is operated in competition with the Singaporean low-cost airlines’ Tiger Airways’ five and Jetstar Asia’s four weekly flights.
Tiger Airways will ramp up frequencies to Kuching, Penang, and Haikou during the upcoming Hari Raya Puasa holiday period in August.
The carrier’s flights from Singapore to Kuching and Penang will operate twice daily from August 17 – 26, 2012.
Its flights from Singapore to Haikou will be upped from three- to five-weekly for the entire month of August.
"With the increased frequencies to Kuching and Penang over the Hari Raya Puasa season, our customers will find it easier to make plans to celebrate and spend time with family and friends,” said Stewart Adams, managing director, Tiger Airways Singapore.
Jetstar Asia on 9th May launched four times weekly Haikou-Singapore-Perth service, providing new low fares access to Perth for Hainan's 8 million residents.
The new route is the first to link the provincial capital of Hainan, China's southernmost island province as well as an international tourism destination, and the scenic resort town of Perth, said Paul Daff, acting chief executive officer of Jetstar Asia.
Using Airbus A320 aircraft, the flight will take off every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and have a stop-over in Singapore.
