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