Tiger Airways will suspend some routes on its domestic Australia network from November as two aircraft are reallocated to its Singaporean operations.
According to reports quoting an internal document sent to Tiger staff, the airline will cut its Adelaide-Brisbane and Adelaide-Gold Coast services from November 10. The airline will also reduce frequencies on the Adelaide-Melbourne route.
The cuts are as a result of one aircraft from Adelaide and one from Tullamarine being redeployed to the new Avalon base, while two A320s due to arrive in November will instead be deployed with Tiger’s Singapore base, which is understood to be growing strongly due to the recent opening of the Marina Bay Sands Casino.
With the changes, it is understood that by November, Tiger will have five A320s based at Tullamarine, and two each at Adelaide and Avalon. Tiger had previously indicated that it would have a fleet of 12 aircraft based in Australia by the end of the year.
