Singapore Airlines Ltd. offered to pay S$453 million ($322 million) for the shares it doesn’t own in Tiger Airways Holdings Ltd., the money-losing low-cost unit it listed less than six years ago, saying it wants to enhance operations across the group’s network.

Southeast Asia’s largest carrier, which owns 55.8 percent of Tiger Airways, said Friday it plans to pay S$0.41 in cash for each share. While that’s 32 percent higher than Thursday’s close, it’s not even one-third of the S$1.50 share price in Tiger Airways’s initial public offering in January 2010
