Budget carrier Tigerair launched direct flights between Singapore and the Chinese coastal city of Quanzhou - making them the only carrier to do so.

The flight service runs every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

Quanzhou is considered one of the most famous historical and cultural cities in China, according to TravelChinaGuide.com.

The city was the starting point of the Sea Silk Road and became a melting pot of exotic cultures and religions such as Christianity, Islam and Manichaeism which arose from Persian roots.

Popular attractions in the city are historic and architectural sites such as Qingjing Mosque, the Islamic Saint Mausoleums, Kaiyuan Temple, Heavenly Empress Palace and Luoyang Bridge.

Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Tigerair's CEO, said, "Tigerair is constantly looking for opportunities to provide travellers with greater choice and connectivity. Operating direct flights to Quanzhou is one such example of how we establish or improve air links between Singapore and other cities."

He added that they are delighted to be strengthening our network in China, where we see tremendous opportunities."

Quanzhou is Tigerair's 12th destination to Greater China and with this new route, the airline will operate a total of 79 flights to China weekly.
