TIGER Airways will introduce thrice-weekly services between Singapore and Colombo starting May 31.
The Sri Lankan capital will be the low-cost carrier's first destination in the country, and its seventh within South Asia.
Stewart Adams, managing director of Tiger Airways Singapore said: “Colombo is an international gateway to many charming tourist spots in Sri Lanka such as its pristine beaches Beruwala and Unawatuna, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites Polonnaruwa and Kandy.”
“The direct service to Colombo will not only enhance connectivity between the two island nations, but will also provide Sri Lankans residing in South-east Asia an added incentive to visit their family and friends in Sri Lanka more often."
Promotional fares to Colombo are available from March 23 on a first-come-first served basis, with prices starting from S$138 (US$109) one-way (Singapore to Colombo), all-inclusive.
The promotional fares are valid for travel from May 31 to September 24, 2012.
