As an air hub, Singapore not only has many international airlines landing at the famed Changi Airport (named world’s best airport for the 5th year running), many budget airlines in the region also pass through Singapore. With the opening of Terminal 4 in 2017, as a replacement for the former budget terminal, Singapore is also now an air hub for budget flights across the region.
Many of our overseas friends want to travel around Southeast Asia but are not sure how to do so. That is why we usually advise them to make Singapore their base and travel from here. This is because of the many budget airlines in Singapore, which give options and of course low prices to fly to various destinations in Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and even Myanmar. The budget airlines that fly out from Singapore includes Tigerair, Airasia, Jetstar and more recently, Scoot for medium to long haul budget flights (yes, budget flights are no longer limited to short haul flights anymore). In addition, the formation of Value Alliance by 8 budget airlines in the region, will only add more destinations and lower costs in the future, making it an exciting time for travellers! In this post, we’ll give you a quick overview of these budget airlines and soon you’ll be able to visit many beautiful destinations in Southeast Asia!

Cheap Flights with Flyscoot
