Tigerair (Singapore) (originally Tiger Airways) is going away. Parent Singapore Airlines has decided to consolidate its budget airline subsidiaries under the Scoot brand and name on July 25, 2017. Tigerair’s (Singapore) aircraft are being repainted in Scoot’s livery. Tigerair’s TR code will survive and will be transferred to Scoot, replacing Scoot’s TZ code.

Tigerair Taiwan and Tigerair Australia will continue to operate under the Tigerair brand.

Scoot issued this statement:

Since May 2016, Scoot and Tigerair has been working to integrate reservation systems, flight schedules and connections, conditions of carriage, check-in counters and call centers. Those integrations have since been completed.

On July 25, 2017, the integration will be finalized and Scoot and Tigerair will merge to operate under a single brand, Scoot. With the merger, Tigerair will operate under the Scoot brand, however the Scoot designator code (TZ) will be re-designated as TR. This merger is part of our long-term growth strategy and to enable a more seamless travel experience for all our guests.
