Scoot cuddles up with Tiger

Singapore-based low cost airlines Tiger Airways and Scoot have signed a partnership agreement which will see each carrier marketing joint itineraries between Phuket, Ho Chi Minh City and Kuala Lumpur, destinations served by Tiger; and Sydney and Gold Coast, served by Scoot.

Customers may purchase a single itinerary for travel from Australia, via Singapore, to Tiger's destinations.

Tiger Airways is an associate of Temasek Holdings, which is the holding company of Singapore Airlines, the parent company of Scoot. Singapore Airlines owns 32.7% of Tiger Airways.

CEO of Scoot, Campbell Wilson, said, "Both carriers operate highly complementary networks, with Scoot focusing on medium-long haul routes of five or more hours, and Tiger focusing on shorter-haul journeys."

In a trial, customers can purchase flight itineraries originating from Australia to South East Asia destinations. They will be issued a single ticket that contains all flight details.

On arrival in Singapore, customers will have to pass through immigration and collect their bags before checking into the second leg of their flight.

In the later phase, customers will be able to purchase flight itineraries originating from South East Asia.

The airlines will also enhance this service with a direct connection process.
