Perth has lost a second carrier on the Singapore route with Tigerair Singapore to drop service to the West Australian capital in early February 2015 as part of the low-cost carrier’s network review.
A Tigerair Singapore spokesperson said decision to end service to Perth was made after careful consideration and confirmed the last flight to depart Perth for the city-state would be TR2717 on February 7 2015.
“The suspension of the Perth route is part of Tigerair’s network review process and is in line with our route rationalisation strategy,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement on Monday.
Perth was one of three destinations Tigerair Singapore was stopping services to, with the low-cost carrier dropping flights to Bandung, Indonesia, at the end of October and ending its Singapore-Phnom Penh route on November 11. Full story
