Cash-conscious travellers will soon be able to benefit from cheap flights on offer from Singapore Airlines’ new low-cost partner.
A new low-cost, no-frills airline is being set up by Singapore Airlines, with the aim of offering affordable air travel throughout Asia and beyond, the airline has said.
Both medium and long-haul routes will be served by the as-yet-unnamed airline, which is being set up in response to the growing demand among consumers for low-fare travel.
The first flights are expected to begin within the next 12 months, and more details including the range of routes on offer, will be confirmed “in due course”, the airline’s owners SIA Group added.
Goh Choon Phong, chief executive officer of SIA, said: “As we have observed on short-haul routes within Asia, low-fare airlines help stimulate demand for travel, and we expect this will also prove true for longer flights.”
Singapore Airlines currently serves a wide range of global destinations, including flights to Delhi, Dubai, Cape Town and Sydney.
