Tigerair fares and ancillary products are to become available on Abacus through an agreement that gives the carrier a platform to compete for travel agent bookings from within the largest portfolio of low-fare and hybrid airlines in the Asia-Pacific.
The integration makes the full range of competitive fares of the Tigerair Group of airlines including Tigerair Singapore and Tigerair Mandala available at more than 20,000 Abacus agency locations in 31 regional feeder markets, which should generate significant incremental corporate and leisure business from the channel.
Ho Hoong Mau, vice-president, airline distribution of Abacus, commented, “Tigerair introduces even more choice for agencies and end users searching for travel options with Abacus. We welcome Tigerair and look forward to driving new business for the brand.”
Alexander Knigge, chief commercial development officer of Tigerair, added, “We are delighted to be working with Abacus to distribute our full range of attractive fares across their strong retail distribution grid and look forward to welcoming their corporate and leisure travel agents’ customers on board our expanding network.”
