The Singapore-Ipoh service to be launched by leading Singapore-based no-frills airline Tigerair on 29 May 2015 is set to boost the number of tourist and business travellers from the republic to the state of Perak.

The new service to be operated by an Airbus 320 aircraft will carry about 1,440 passengers per week, making Tigerair the only Airbus operator to fly directly to Ipoh four times weekly.

Ipoh being the fourth largest city in Malaysia and home to both rich heritage footprints and trendy entertainment alternatives will be Tigerair’s fourth Malaysian destination which currently comprises Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang. The new service will not only attract tourists looking for a short getaway to enjoy the many attractions Ipoh and Perak has to offer but will also provide convenience for passengers who commute between Singapore and Ipoh for business.

“This new route will make us the first to operate jet flights to Ipoh. Residents in Ipoh may also find it convenient to travel to Singapore, and onwards to destinations in Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas, with other carriers in Singapore Airlines Group. We are looking forward to fulfil our ongoing commitment to provide travellers with greater choices and memorable experiences.” he added.  Tigerair is a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines Group.
