Recently, Singapore based low cost airline, Tiger Airways proposed to enhance its flight frequency between Trichy in India and Singapore.
Famous for its cheap flights to Asian destinations including India, the airline is going to start two additional flights to Trichy, India from Singapore with effect from August 2012, sources revealed. This would enhance the airline’s flight frequency to 9 flights per week.
Besides, airlines operating flights to India connecting the popular South Indian city of Trichy with Singapore and Kuala Lumpur have already started using the new Air Traffic Services (ATS) route called V 30.
With Tiger Airways’ additional flights to India, the total number of flights using the new route will increase to 23 from the current 21 services per week.
Sources indicate that passengers taking inbound flights to Trichy are now able to save time! The new route has shortened the flight time by seventeen minutes as the distance has been reduced by 44 nautical miles.
Moreover, the airlines are able to save on the surging aviation turbine fuel. Air Asia, Tiger Airways, and Air India have been able to benefit from fuel saving and reduced flight time by using the new route, revealed a senior official of Airports Authority of India.
The authorities are also looking forward to connect the new route with Coimbatore and Calicut in order to join the ‘Mike 300′ route for Dubai. The move will result not only in decreasing the flight time to Dubai but also trim down the carbon emissions in the atmosphere due to less fuel consumption.
