Tigerair And Cebu Pacific Strategic Alliance Gets CCS Approval
Daily Bulletin | 22 September 2015

Tiger Airways Holdings (Tigerair) announced the strategic alliance agreement between Tigerair and Cebu Pacific has been approved by the Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS).

The approval of the alliance follows a thorough review by the CCS and enables Tigerair and Cebu Pacific to deepen cooperation for the Singapore and Philippines markets. In addition, Tigerair and Cebu Pacific have an existing interline cooperation as part of the alliance and the CCS approval allows both parties to build upon current arrangements.

With both carriers operating complementary networks, the strategic alliance will provide better connectivity across both airlines’ networks. Cebu Pacific’s customers, particularly from the Philippines, will be able to tap on Tigerair’s established network in South East Asia and India, while Tigerair customers on the other hand will be able to select from Cebu Pacific’s extensive network in the Philippines and North Asia.

The approval by the CCS creates greater potential for closer coordination on sales and schedules on relevant routes, which will offer customers more flight options at good value.
