We flew to Hong Kong and back recently on Tiger Airways, budget carrier owned by Singapore Airlines. Based in Singapore, TigerAir operates a fleet of 25 aircraft (Airbus A320) to almost 40 destinations. This is the first time we are flying with Tigerair.
Overall, the flight for 4 pax (2 adults and 2 kids) cost us SGD
$530 in total including taxes, return. This is about USD 375 or US93.75 per person. The flight from SIN
takes almost 4 hours and the return leg about 3.5 hours.
Our departure was early morning, 0605hrs.
Some still pictures. Check-in counter at Terminal 2, Singapore Changi Airport. Common check-in for all Tiger Air flights.
This is in the restricted area, after immigration. The time was around 5am. Many stores were still closed, though most of the eateries were opened. This is Singapore Changi Terminal 2. Well, we don't have a 24 by 7 airport, unlike Dubai.
Beautiful floral display at Singapore Changi.
In this video, I show you snippets of Singapore Changi Airport that morning.
In the line to board the plane. This was taken while waiting in line on the aerobridge.
On board the aircraft, at my seat which was an aisle seat. Aircraft was a single aisle Airbus A320. This is a Budget carrier.
Cockpit door was not yet closed. Passengers were still boarding. I could see the cockpit crew doing preparatory work for this flight.
This video shows you the flight itself. Pretty smooth. We ate breakfast before boarding the aircraft, so we did not purchase any food while on board.
This video shows you some footage post arrival at HK
International. We were at a satellite terminal and we had to take an airport bus to the main terminal. It was a very bright and sunny day.
After arrival at HKG
, we had some food at an airport eatery called Tsui Wah. Once our stomachs were filled, it was time to head into Hong Kong. We took Citybus A21 to Tsim Sha Tsui area, where our hotel would be.
Some pictures of airplanes upon arrival at HKIA. This was the Airbus A320 that flew us to Hong Kong. The livery is neat.
HKexpress.com. I've not tried this Airline before.
This was taken from the Airport bus at the satellite terminal. Yes, we had to take an airport bus from the satellite terminal to the main terminal. Check out my video for the bus ride.
