Tiger Airways celebrated its 10 millionth passenger on February 19. The airline marked the occasion with a $10 fare sale on its most popular routes.
Tiger’s commercial director Carly Brear said: “Tiger’s presence brings healthy competition and local economic benefits to Australia. 10 million passengers is a significant achievement. We would like to thank everyone who has chosen to fly Tiger to date. Our $10 sale is one way we can give back to our growing fan base and perhaps get those who haven’t tried Tiger before to do so.”
The airline recently announced a tranche of new routes including Melbourne-Sunshine Coast, Sydney-Cairns and a return to Alice Springs from Sydney and Melbourne. Tiger has also introduced flights between Sydney and Coffs Harbour.
“We’re an airline that continues to expand based on customer demand. Our goal now is to become the airline of choice for both value and service for the next 10 million passengers that we hope get the opportunity to fly with Tiger,” said Brear.
The 10 millionth passenger received a $1,000 travel voucher from Tiger.
The airline started operations on November 23 2007.
