Tiger Airways is planning to launch flights to Kochi, India.

Kochi, the bustling financial capital of Kerala in southwest India, is a city rich in culture and history. Once a world famous trading port, Kochi preserves its rustic charm as a seaside city, retaining its historic buildings and key festivals dating back to the 16th century.

Tickets to Kochi are now available at a promotional fare from Sin$110 one-way (Singapore to Kochi), all-inclusive, for travel from 27 April 2012 to 29 October 2012. Tiger Airways will fly four times a week to Kochi when the service launches – on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

To celebrate this milestone, Tiger Airways is also offering promotional fares to its other destinations in India. This promotion includes flights to Thiruvananthapuram (from Sin$115 one-way), flights to Chennai (from Sin$130 one-way), Tiruchirappalli (from Sin$140 one-way) and flights to Bangalore (from Sin$140 one-way) – all inclusive of taxes and charges. The travel period for this promotion is between 1 March and 31 March 2012. Terms and conditions apply. “With the addition of Kochi to our portfolio of destinations, Tiger Airways will now serve five destinations in India, providing travellers from Singapore and the region with even more great value travel options,” said Stewart Adams, Managing Director of Tiger Airways Singapore. “India is an important market for Tiger Airways, and this further increase to the number of routes flown to this region demonstrates Tiger’s commitment to extending its paw print and growing its presence. Singapore is India’s largest trade and investment partner in ASEAN, and the launch of our Kochi route will further increase accessibility for leisure and business travellers whilst encouraging bilateral connectivity within ASEAN.”
