Crawford Rix, Tiger Airways managing director, said: “Commencing with seven new flights from Avalon Airport, this is further proof that Tiger Airways is well positioned to continue our successful expansion in Australia as planned.”

Last year, Tiger Airways carried a total of three million passengers flying to 14 domestic airports in Australia.

The airline operates nine Airbus A320 aircraft in Australia and ten A320s on its Singapore routes. Tiger Airways reported a profit after tax of $14.1 million (£8.75 million) for the three months ending 30 September 2010, compared to a loss of $2.3 million (£1.4 million) during the same period in 2009.
