Tigerair to offer promotional Kaohsiung-Macau tickets

Taipei, Jan. 12 (CNA) Tigerair Taiwan, the first budget carrier based in Taiwan since it took to the skies last September, is increasing its bid in the low-cost air travel market by offering 1,000 one-way tickets between Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan and Macau for NT$777 (US$24). The budget carrier, a joint venture between Taiwan's China Airlines and Singapore's Tiger Airways, said Monday that the tickets would go on sale at noon the following day. The promotional campaign came after its offer of an inaugural Taipei-Macau flight for just NT$88 last month, in the hopes of building up travel momentum to the Chinese Special Administrative Region, according to the airline. The NT$777 tickets, which do not include tax, can be used between April 1 and June 30, it said. Taipei-Macau travel costs are usually around NT$1,400. Tigerair launched Taipei-Macau flights from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Dec. 17, followed the next day by Kaohsiung-Macau round-trip services every Monday, Thursday and Sunday. The Kaohsiung-Macau flights will be changed and increased to four round-trips per week on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from March 29, it said. (By Lee Hsin-Yin)
