Tiger Airways Australia recorded a 10.8 per cent improvement in operating results during 2012/13, but still recorded an overall loss of S$69 million.

The carrier’s revenue rose 60.4 per cent to S$247 million on a 57 per cent increase in passenger traffic. However, a rise in costs by some 37 per cent largely obviated the improved revenues.

Bringing Tiger to profit will be Virgin Australia’s priority when it takes majority ownership mid-year as it positions the low-cost airline against rival Jetstar.
