Tigerair Australia stops growling

Closes for good after 13 years of flying

Tigerair Australia is the latest travel casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Australian budget carrier has closed for good after 13 years of operation. The airline stopped flights on 25 March 2020 due to the virus.

Parent company Virgin Australia decided to close the company after its own takeover by Bain Capital.

Passengers with bookings for Tigerair Australia flights are getting a travel credit at equivalent value for use on Virgin Australia operated services.

It means that Jetstar, owned by rival Qantas, is now the only budget airline operating in Australia.
