1 October 2012, Singapore – Singapore Airlines owned low cost carriers Tiger Airways Singapore and Scoot signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) today toward a wide-ranging cooperation.  Since the closure of the budget terminal on 25 September 2012, Tiger Airways has moved to Singapore Changi Airport Terminal Two where it operates side-by-side with Scoot.

Here is a summary of the details of the MOU of the two airlines have to offer:

  • Phase 1 – Each carrier will market joint itineraries between Phuket, Ho Chi Minh City and Kuala Lumpur (served by Tiger) and Sydney and Gold Coast (served by Scoot) .  This means customers in Australia can purchase a single itinerary for travel from Australia, via Singapore to Tiger’s destination.   Passengers will be issued a single ticket containing all flight details and will be entitled to 15kg check-in baggage allowance on the interline itinerary.   However, on arrival in Singapore, passengers will have to clear immigration and collect their bags before checking into the second leg of their flight at the departure hall.   Tickets for joint itineraries will be on sale from 2 October 2012 for travel from 15 October 2012 onwards.
  • Phase 2 – Customers will be able to purchase flight itineraries from South East Asia on 2 November 2012 onwards for travel from the same date.  A direct connection process will also be introduced where passengers can proceed with their onward journey with clearing immigration or retrieving their checked baggage and re-checking in.
  • Applications for anti-trust immunity through relevant regulatory authorities will be sought at the appropriate time as required.
