“We congratulate Tigerair and are very happy to contribute to the success of the airline with our seats. We are delighted to be able to further expand our partnership with Tigerair, a subsidiary airline under the Singapore Airlines Group,” stated Irene Tan, general manager for Asia Pacific at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “The 3530Swift seat’s short delivery times, combined with its extensive options package, represent an ideal solution for low-cost airlines.”
