Hi there. We start off this week with quite a number of new routes in an attempt to keep YOU updated. We will look into the new services very briefly as the sheer quantity does not allow us to go into the details.
One year ago Allegiant moved 10 of its routes from Orlando Sanford International Airport to Orlando International Airport but now announced the homecoming of all ten routes in a bid to consolidate its all Orlando flights. The routes in question are e.g. Orlando Sanford – Allentown, Orlando Sanford – Des Moines or Orlando Sanford – Lexington. By now the return of all the routes should be accomplished.
While Allegiant is reshuffling the existing routes, Skyways is growing big time. Following the merger with Avia Express and a shift in ownership, this Swedish-based low-cost airline is adding six new international destinations and one domestic destination to its route network. The carriers new base becomes Airport Jönköping. The change will be marked by the opening of new services from Jönköping to Brussels and from Jönköping to Berlin Tegel. Both services will be in operation as of March 28, 2011.

The above-mentioned services are in operation as of February 7, 2011 but are available for booking already now on the official website of Tiger Airways.

It is not everyday an airline has its four millionth passenger on board. So when the number of passengers has reached the magical figure of four millions it calls for celebration. This is the case with Tiger Airways and the celebration of course means some benefits for travelers.
