SINGAPORE - Tigerair is expanding its network with thrice-weekly flights to Quanzhou and Lucknow, becoming the only airline in Singapore to operate flights to these two cities. Flights to Quanzhou start from September 28, and to Lucknow, on December 3.

A coastal city in China's Fujian province, Quanzhou is famed for its scenic Mount Qingyuan National Park and historical Kai Yuan Temple, and is a destination of interest for Fujian Chinese looking to rediscover their roots.

The city is also an important destination for business travellers in the textile, apparel, and petrochemical industry.

Lucknow is the capital city of Uttar Pradesh, one of India's top GDP-generating cities, and rich in architectural heritage.

As a gateway to other cities in India, visitors can venture from there to Agra for the world-renowned Taj Mahal, or visit Varanasi, Allahabad, and Gaya, which are important cities on the Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage circuits.

The new flights will further improve Singapore's links to India and China, and enhance connectivity for customers, said Tigerair's CEO Lee Lik Hsin.

Flight bookings for the Quanzhou and Lucknow services open for sale on the Tigerair website on August 25 and September 1 respectively.
