Australia’s Budget Airline Tigerair Australia Shuts Down Operations

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted economies around the world and it has forced many businesses to shut down.

One such business is Australia’s budget airline Tigerair Australia.

According to a report in Mothership quoting 9Newsthe airline is shutting down its operations after 13 years.
 

 

The company reportedly confirmed the matter officially in an email to their customers, saying that this is a tough time for the travel and tourism industry.

Official announcement released

Its parent company, Virgin Australia had said that Tigerair would be discontinued, but the company will retain its air operator certificate so that the brand could be revived later.

Maybe they'll make a comeback.

In the meantime, the hope is that Virgin Australia will absorb all the staff from Tigerair. 

It's a tough year for every industry, and we hope that the airline industry will bounce back soon.
