Tiger Airways Australia will re-launch the its Melbourne to Brisbane services on Thursday, as the airline rolls out its revised flight schedule after being handed back its AOC last week.

The new flights, which went on sale today, follows the commencement of three daily return services between Melbourne and Sydney last Friday, which Tiger is increasing to four and then five return services by Thursday. Meanwhile, the airline will initially offer only one daily Melbourne to Brisbane return service, with plans to add a second by August 23.

“Since resuming Australian domestic services last Friday the airline has been pleased with solid bookings and the achievement of 100 per cent on time performance for all departures and all arrivals to date,” Tiger Airways head of marketing and communications, Vanessa Regan, said.


“Tiger’s got off to a good start given the airline’s intention to fly the popular routes and to improve its overall reliability,” she added.
