Tigerair Launches Direct-to-Gate

Tigerair has launched Direct-to-Gate a competing service to Jetstars Straight to Gate which allows you to go direct to the gate without the need to visit the check-in desk.

Tigerair Launches Direct to Gate 2

You are eligible for Direct-to-Gate if:

(1) You only have carry-on baggage
(2) You do not have any visa or other entry requirements (e.g. proof of return or onward travel)
(3) You are boarding a Tigerair flight that’s travelling out of Singapore to one of the following destinations:

  • Cambodia – Phnom Penh
  • China – Hong Kong, Macau
  • Indonesia – Bandung, Denpasar (Bali), Jakarta, Surabaya, Yogyakarta
  • Malaysia –  Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi, Penang
  • Maldives – Malé
  • Philippines – Cebu, Clark, Kalibo (Boracay), Manila
  • Thailand – Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, Krabi, Phuket
  • Vietnam – Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City

If you have any questions on the service I suggest having a look at the Tigerair Launches Direct-to-Gate page as well as the FAQ page.

If you are interested in the Jetstar service which is almost identical but does have a different list of destinations that are eligible then check here.
