Tigerair Taiwan CEO Update
Tigerair Taiwan is majority owned by Taiwan’s China Airlines, which has also introduced a hand bag-only fare to compete in an increasingly price sensitive market. Tigerair Taiwan CEO Kwan Yue sees China Airlines targeting a different market with this fare. Tigerair Taiwan has grown extensively in Japan including Tokyo and Osaka but traffic rights restrict its growth in another key Northeast Asian city, Seoul. Southeast Asia is the next market for the airline’s growth.
