AVERAGE load factors on Tigerair's India routes remain strong and the airline is looking to increase frequencies on the Hyderabad sector, even as it breaks off an interline agreement with SpiceJet.
The budget carrier, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, is recording an average load factor of 80 per cent on Indian routes.
Speaking to TTG Asia e-Daily about the termination of the carrier’s interline agreement with SpiceJet, Teh Yikchuan, director, sales and marketing, Tigerair, said: “We see a low number of connecting passengers from our interline agreement with Spicejet, which is why the agreement is not continued.
“Currently nothing is on regarding any new interline arrangement in India. Our Hyderabad flight is going from five to six times come end-April, and we are looking at consolidating our position and strengthening our sales on our present capacity for the coming year.”
“Apart from (Hyderabad) we don't have any plans to increase frequency or add any new destination in our network in India," he added.
Tigerair offers daily flights from Bengaluru, nine times a week from Chennai, four times a week from Cochin and 12 flights from Trichi.
