Low cost carriers are driving much of the growth in aviation, and Tiger Airways is leading the charge in domestic Australian travel. Sydney travellers will welcome Tiger’s competitive product offering on their return to the Sydney-Coolangatta and Sydney-Brisbane routes, in addition to its existing Sydney-Melbourne services,” Kerrie Mather, CEO.
