Tigerair has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus to buy 37 A320neo with an additional 13 options, with the aircraft to be operated by the Group’s three airlines – Tigerair Singapore, Tigerair Mandala (Indonesia) and Tigerair Australia – across its Asia-Pacific route network.
The Group’s network extends to over 50 destinations across 14 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The Group currently operates an all-Airbus fleet of 48 A320-family aircraft, averaging less than three years of age.
“We are delighted to conclude this agreement, which will allow us to introduce the latest single-aisle aircraft into our fleet,” said Koay Peng Yen, Tigerair’s Group CEO. “This agreement also underscores Tigerair’s commitment to continue building on our leadership position in the budget travel sector at a measured pace.”
The company has chosen Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM engines to power its A320neos.
