Tigerair flies stranded people-A A +A
Monday, August 19, 2013
TIGERAIR, the fastest growing low-cost carrier in the country, has partnered with 2G0 Shipping to render public service to stranded passengers who wish to return to Manila.
About 130 passengers, including two infants, will board Tigerair flights 7015 and 7023 from Cebu to Manila tonight.
As part of its compensation package to passengers of the ill-fated MV Tomas Aquinas, 2GO Shipping coordinated with Tigerair Philippines for the purchase of the air tickets. Tigerair provided a special rate as its way to extend assistance, including booking of the passengers based on a manifesto given them. 2GO will be responsible for distributing the tickets.
Tigerair boasts of a pool of customer-centric and highly professional cabin crew and pilots to ensure passengers get to their destinations safely. Tigerair’s Airbus A320s and A319s are among the youngest fleet to fly to Cebu, Bacolod, Kalibo, Iloilo, Tacloban, Puerto Pincesa. (PR)
