Tiger Airways Takes Delivery of Airbus A320 From GE
GE Capital Aviation Services Limited (GECAS) says its customer Tiger Airways, based in Singapore, has taken delivery of a new leased Airbus A320 aircraft. According to GE, the aircraft is the first of five scheduled for delivery in 2013 as part of a multiple aircraft purchase-and-leaseback transaction with Tiger Airways Holdings.
In a statement issued today, GE describes the carrier saying it was established in 2003, and it is the parent company of a group of budget carriers operating in the Asian region and Australia. The Group consists of wholly-owned Tiger Airways Singapore and Tiger Airways Australia, and partially-owned Mandala Airlines and SEAir. As of 30 April 2013, the Group’s fleet comprises 44 Airbus A320-family aircraft, averaging under three years of age. The group operates an extensive network covering over 50 destinations across 13 countries in the Asia Pacific.
