Good news for people in Singapore and Malaysia. Three LCC competing with the "big boys" SQ and MH shows signs there's seat demands for this segment.
Tiger Airways (TR) is a subsidiary of SQ and JetStarAsia is an offshoot of Jetstar Airways which is 100% owned by Qantas. They both are awarded 1 flight each.

AirAsia is Malaysian based allowed 2 daily flights. All operating A320's. It seems like hardly a dent but a good start.

Will TR passengers benefit more from the lower fees at the budget terminal?

No it's not. Qantas has direct ownership of 42.5% of Orange Star which is the holding company formed to own both Jetstar Asia and Valuair. Orange Star has Malaysian and Singaporean shareholders including Temasek Holdings. Jetstar Airways has no interest in Orange Star.
