TIGERAIR on Tuesday announced that it will launch four-times weekly flights from Singapore to Ipoh from May 29, subject to regulatory approval - becoming the first and only Singapore carrier to do so.
The Ipoh service will be operated by an Airbus 320 aircraft, carrying about 1,440 passengers per week.
Tickets for the new service will go on sale from April 20.
Said Tigerair chief executive officer Lee Lik Hsin: "We are excited to add Ipoh to our growing Asia network and be the first to operate jet flights in Ipoh. Tigerair already enjoys a significant presence in Malaysia and this addition will help meet demand for both leisure and business travel between Singapore and Malaysia."
Ipoh will be Tigerair's fourth Malaysian destination, after Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang.
