Tiger Airways

Singapore Low Cost Airline

The main competitor airline to Jetstar Asia, Singapore's Tiger Airways flies to one or two of the same destinations including Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand.

But note that in its bid to become a Ryanair-style lowest cost airline, Tiger Airways often prefers to fly to secondary airports - to Macau, for instance just across the water from Hong Kong, and to Clark Field, serving Manila, rather than to the Philippine capital's main airport.

From Singapore, Tiger Airways has the widest selection of low cost routes to Thailand and is also the only Singaporean budget carrier flying direct to China.

Tiger Airways is also, along with Jetstar Asia, one of the few Southeast Asian low cost airlines flying to Australia.
