Tigerair claws back at Jetstar with cut-price fare sale
Its rival discount sale ends at midnight tonight.
While it's not Tigerair's birthday, the Aussie low-cost carrier has released a bunch of cut-price fares in similar fashion to rival Jetstar's latest birthday sale.
The Tigerair sale, which began yesterday and runs until midnight (AEDT) Wednesday 25 May, includes discounted one-way fares from $29 on 15 domestic routes, as well as the airline’s three Bali routes.
Examples of some cheap deals include Gold Coast to Sydney from $29, Melbourne to Sydney for $39 and Perth to Bali's Denpasar airport for just $79. (All those are available in either direction.)
Fares are non-refundable and additional charges apply for optional extras such as checked-in baggage, travel insurance and reserved seat selection. Baggage fares can make a big difference to the cost of your trip. You can check out complete list of extra airline fees for Australian flights here.
Tigerair Australia recently partnered with seven other low-cost airlines across Asia-Pacific to form the Value Alliance and also introduced a "MoveMe" option for customers, which lets you switch to an earlier flight if you show up ahead of time and there's a seat available.
