Value Alliance is an airline alliance formed in May 2016. It is the world's second alliance (after the U-FLY Alliance) to consist only of low-cost carriers (LCCs). However, it is the first pan-regional LCC alliance. It comprises eight Asia-Pacific airlines: Cebu Pacific, Cebgo, Jeju Air, Nok Air, NokScoot, Scoot, Tigerair Australia and Vanilla Air, along with Tigerair who merged with Scoot under the Scoot brand.

Value Alliance is the fourth largest airline alliance in terms of passengers, flights, destinations, combined fleet and members, ahead of U-FLY Alliance and Vanilla Alliance.[3]

History[edit]

The Value Alliance was established by eight airlines in the Asia-Pacific region on 16 May 2016.[4] The alliance allows passengers to book flights with all of the eight carriers through each partner website, to create itineraries across the region through a single booking.[5] The combined carriers collectively serve more than 160 destinations, primarily in the Asia-Pacific region,[5] with a total fleet of 176 aircraft and an annual passenger total of 47 million in 2015.[6]

However, Tigerair ceased to operate on 25 July 2017, currently operating under the Scoot brand.
