No-frills Singapore airline Tigerair is linking up with Golden Myanmar in a daily code-share flight from Singapore-Yangon-Singapore, GMA’s chief operations officer U Khin Mg Myint told The Myanmar Times.
“We will sell the tickets and Tiger will contribute their flight. This will reduce costs,” he said.
Tiger is Singapore’s largest no-frills carrier, flying to more than 90 destinations in the Asia Pacific region. The company’s commercial director, Robert Yang, said, “We look forward to an expansion of the code-share arrangement to other Myanmar destinations like Mandalay and Bagan.”
GMA is currently flying domestic routes, and also to Chiang Mai and Bangkok. The company is planning to add the route Yangon-Kunming in November, and from the end of this year will fly to Doha, said U Khin Mg Myint.
“From October 26 we run a direct flight to Bangkok before flying to Singapore. Ticket price is only US$49 one-way,” he said.
