Tiger Airways Australia, officially known as Tigerair Australia, was an Australian airline low-cost airline based in Melbourne, Australia. The airline began operations in November 2007 from its hub in Melbourne, Victoria and is subsidiary of Virgin Australia. Tigerair Australia then opened a second base in Sydney in July 2012 and a third base in Brisbane in March 2014.

In July 2013, the airline re-branded to Tigerair Australia and the joint venture between Tiger Airways Holdings and the Virgin Australia Group was launched, with Virgin Australia acquiring 60% of Tigerair Australia.

In February 2015, the Virgin Australia Group completed the acquisition of the remaining 40% and Tigerair Australia is now a fully owned subsidiary of Virgin Australia Holdings.



Tiger Australia operated domestically across 19 domestic routes (21 with the addition of new routes Brisbane – Whitsunday Coast and Brisbane to Perth launching in 2017) and to 12 destinations around Australia. The airline operated over 400 domestic flights per week, with around 72,000 seats per week available.
