This coming Sunday at 14.50 pm, Krabi Discovery, on behalf of the Tourism and Hospitality Industries of Krabi, extends a warm welcome to Tiger Airways  Flight TR 182 on their re-visit to Krabi and all our distinguished visitors a warm and happy holiday.

This is the second attempts by Tiger Airways to connect flights  from Changi Air  Hub to Krabi.  Since its last operation in early 2008, Rosalynn Tay, Tiger Airways Singapore Managing Director said that they’ve received numerous requests to resume flights to Krabi. “I’m delighted to tell all Tiger customers that we have listened to their requests and are now able to add Krabi to our fast-growing network of exciting destinations…”
As the first airline flying to one of Thailand’s most popular summer destinations from Singapore, Tiger Airways names Krabi as the fifth new destination launched in 2009, bringing our network to 37 routes across Asia Pacific. So what are you waiting for? Start preparing for the beach getaway of the year! and soak up the sun, sea, sand, and good vibes at Thailand’s island paradise!

Krabi will receive four Tiger Air Boeing 737 flights a week direct from Singapore from October 25 as the province gears up for high season. Bookings for December-February were running at about 60 percent, said Itirid Kingkawe, President of the Tourist Association of Krabi. He anticipated the rate would rise to 80 percent. ”Most of our customers are from Scandinavia or other parts of Europe,” he said. ”We are hoping the Singapore flights will broaden the market for Krabi.” Long-haul flights have suffered generally, Khun Itirid added, with many destinations trying to encourage more travel within the region. ”Guests from Europe are also not staying as long,” he said. ”Once, people would come for three months. These days their visits are shorter and they are spending less money.” Krabi has 15,000 rooms and its appeal, a mixture of nature and quality accommodation, is similar to that of its neighbor, Phang Nga. Prime attractions are Ao Nang, the departure point for more remote destinations that sometimes can only be reached by water. Phi Phi, Lanta and Phuket are all popular excursions from Krabi. Environmental issues continued to grow, along with the number of tourists, on Phi Phi especially, he said. Krabi would recover, along with the world’s economy. ”It’s a long way to Bangkok and the problems of the deep south from here,” he said.
