Tiger Airways Posts 5-per cent Passenger Growth in May
Tiger Airways Holdings Limited said Monday that it carried 339,000 passengers in May, up 5 per cent from the previous year.
The average load factor was 82 per cent, a decrease of 4 percentage points from last year.
For the 12 months to May 2012, Tiger Airways carried 3.9 million passengers, an improvement of 32 per cent year-on-year while load factor fell 6 percentage points to 80 per cent.
Meanwhile, Tiger Airways Australia carried 112,000 passengers, down 55 per cent from May 2011 as the unit operated at a reduced capacity and on a limited schedule.
Tiger Airways Australia said it is steadily growing capacity and expects to ramp up to pre-suspension levels of 64 sectors daily by the second half of 2012. Sydney, its second Australian base, will start operations in July 2012.
For the 12 months to May 2012, Tiger Airways Australia carried 1.2 million passengers, a decrease of 61 per cent compared to the preceding 12-month period.
This was primarily due to the six-week suspension of Tiger Airways Australia’s services in mid-2011, and the subsequent under-utilisation of its fleet.
Tiger Airways Holdings Limited closed Monday at S$0.645.
