Tiger Airways Holdings Ltd (Tiger Air) is a low-fare, low-cost airline focused on Asia and Australasia. It currently operates out of three bases in Singapore, Melbourne and Adelaide. Tiger Air aims to maximise profitability by developing a portfolio of routes with consistently high passenger load factors and carefully managing capacity. The airline operates a fleet of 17 Airbus A320 family aircraft and has committed to purchase additional Airbus A320s, which will increase the size of its fleet to 68 by Dec 15.

Ancillary revenues are generated through additional products and services such as additional baggage services, seat selector fees, in-flight sale of beverages, food and merchandise, as well as commissions earned through the distribution of travel insurance, accommodation and car rental services.

Tiger Air also charges a convenience fee for most reservations made through its website.
