Tigerair Australia says goodbye

Tigerair Australia, now owned by Bain Capital, issued this statement:

“There is no denying these are tough times for everyone in the travel and tourism industry.

Today, (September 11) we announced the difficult decision to discontinue the Tigerair Australia brand after nearly 13 years of operation, due to the devastating impacts COVID-19 is having on our industry.

To all of our wonderful people, past and present, thank you. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to our airline, for always rising to the occasion, and for never letting adversity stand in your way.

To our customers and partners, thank you for your loyalty and support. It’s been an honour flying you around this great country of ours.”

Tigerair commenced operations on November 23, 2017 with a flight from Melbourne to the Gold Coast.
