"With a larger fleet, we will increase frequencies to our most popular destinations such as Bangkok and Taipei, re-introduce services to Bangalore following an 11-month absence and introduce exciting new destinations such as Cebu to our network," said Stewart Adams, managing director of Tiger Airways Singapore.

Tiger Airways will operate its new Singapore-Bangalore and Singapore-Cebu services four times weekly from 31 October and 6 September respectively, while increasing the frequency of the Singapore-Cebu route to daily flights from October, the statement said.

The carrier will also increase its flight frequency from Singapore to Kuching, Hat Yai and Taipei to 10 times a week from August and begin operating 11 Singapore-Tiruchirapalli flights a week from September, according to the statement.

The airline currently serves daily flights to all four destinations.
