Tigerair claws back at Jetstar with cut-price fare sale

Posted: 25 May 2016 10:37 am


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.

Flying dates and peak periods may be excluded, meaning you may have to be flexible with dates.

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.
