Tiger Airways Launches tigerconnect With Changi Airport Group

BANGALORE, January 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Enjoy Hassle-free Transfers at Singapore Changi Airport

From 1 February 2013, passengers of Tiger Airways Singapore and its partner airlines will be able to make hassle-free transfers at Singapore Changi Airport without the need for travel visa to enter Singapore, immigration clearance, and retrieval and checking-in of their luggage a second time for onward flights. 

Tiger Airways, in collaboration with Changi Airport Group (CAG), recently announced the launch of tigerconnect, a seamless and hassle-free transfer service. The new service is provided jointly with CAG, and rides on the Changi Connects platform that was launched by CAG in November last year.

With tigerconnect, passengers making connecting flights will be able to collect their onward travel boarding passes on arrival at transfer desks in Singapore Changi Airport transit area. Thereafter, they can proceed to enjoy the myriad of amenities at the airport, without worrying about baggage transfers, before boarding the second leg of their flight to destinations such as Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

Following Tiger Airways Singapore's recent collaboration with Via.com, customers in India will now be able to book flights on Tiger Airways through Via.com's network of more than 20,000 stores across 2400 cities.

Mr. Ho Yuen Sang, Managing Director of Tiger Airways Singapore, said, "We are delighted to begin the new year with this collaboration with Changi Airport Group to offer our passengers seamless connectivity between flights, convenience and cost savings. We have rolled out a slew of new products and services last year, and tigerconnect is yet another step forward in terms of our offerings." 

tigerconnect is available across Tiger Airways' network of over 50 destinations, including those of its partner airlines, Mandala Airlines and SEAir, as well as on joint-itineraries offered with Scoot. The airport transfer feature will be incorporated in all of the airline's flights transiting at Singapore Changi Airport. Passengers in transit for more than eight hours can choose to travel without the airport transfer feature should they wish to leave the airport to meet with friends and relatives residing in Singapore.

Mr. Lim Ching Kiat, Senior Vice President for Market Development of Changi Airport Group, said, "As a world-class airport recognised for its efficiency and service innovations, we are delighted to partner Tiger Airways to provide transfer passengers with a smooth and hassle-free travel experience. Changi Airport has seen a strong increase in transfer traffic over the past year, with an 11% year-on-year increase in the twelve months ending November 2012. With an innovation such as tigerconnect, more passengers will get extra time to enjoy the exciting array of world-class shopping, dining, relaxation and entertainment amenities available at Singapore Changi Airport." 

Tiger Airways has seen growing customer demand in connecting flights across its network, with over 120,000 passengers transiting at Singapore Changi Airport to onward destinations in 2012. Riding on this, the airline has also introduced several innovative products to further enhance its passengers' experience, including tigerapp, a mobile booking application available on the iPhone and Android mobile platforms; tigerplus, a premium add-on service; and tigershop online, which allows passengers to pre-order duty-free products ahead of flights. 

The following are selected routes that are available for booking from 24 to 30 January, and their accompanying fares.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?

Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
