Singapore budget carrier Tiger Airways said Friday it will provide a chartered aircraft that will exclusively fly foreign guests visiting the city's first casino resort, AFP reported.

The airline said it signed an agreement with Resorts World Sentosa under which the casino operator will take over the lease of the aircraft. The plane will be staffed by pilots and cabin crew from Tiger Airways.

"Yet to be named, the private flight service, operated by Tiger Airways, will have an aircraft operating as a dedicated charter service for Resorts World Sentosa, transporting guests between Singapore and other cities around the region," it said.

The service is scheduled to commence late this year, it said in a statement, adding that details and schedules were being finalised. It will ply Tiger Airways existing region-wide network, which also includes Australia.

Resorts World Sentosa on Sunday opened the city's first casino, which is part of a 4.4 billion US dollar complex that also includes a Universal Studios movie theme park, premium hotels, restaurants and convention facilities.

Tiger Airways operates flights to 33 destinations across 11 countries and territories in Asia and Australia from bases in Singapore and the Australian cities of Melbourne and Adelaide.

A second casino resort owned by US-based Las Vegas Sands is scheduled to open in Singapore in April. The government says its decision to lift a ban on casinos in 2005 was aimed at boosting tourism.
