Tigerair Australia (known as Tiger Airways Australia until July 2013) is a low-cost airline based in Melbourne, Australia. As of March 2014, it operates to 12 destinations in six states and territories across Australia, with 2 more destinations, Darwin and Whitsunday Coast, to be available from April, 2014. [1] Tigerair Australia has operated flights to 17 destinations in Australia, but the majority of these destinations were discontinued after the grounding of the airline's entire fleet by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority in July 2011.

The airline has its main base at Melbourne Airport, while a second base was opened in Adelaide Airport in March 2009.[2] Tiger Airways' operations in Adelaide were shut down in August 2011 due to commercial reasons.[3] Sydney Airport was opened as a smaller "virtual base" on 29 October 2009.[4]
