Tigerair Australia is celebrating its ninth birthday since domestic services first commenced in November 2007.
Tigerair Australia Head of Communications, Vanessa Regan, said this was a significant milestone for the airline “which continues to soar to new heights in Australia with more value and choice for consumers than ever before”.
“Tigerair Australia has come such a long way in nine years and we’re very proud to be Australia’s most on time low cost airline coupled with the lowest cancellation rate of all the major domestic airlines, since January 2015,” she said.
“The past year has been a significant one for Tigerair Australia. We’ve flown well over 21 million passengers (nearly the population of Australia), introduced six new routes including our first short haul international services to Bali.
“We recently announced a major boost for Queensland tourism with a third A320 aircraft to be based in Brisbane creating over 50 new jobs and facilitating the launch of two new routes between Brisbane and Perth and Brisbane and Whitsunday Coast Airport in 2017 as well as additional flights on a number of existing popular Queensland routes.
“Our newest services between Melbourne and Canberra launch next month from 8 December,” she said.
