operational performance

The Tigerair Australia team work hard to continually improve our customer service, our on time performance results and so much more. Please see below a list of key statistics that transparently display our overall performance. As always, we remain committed to safe, reliable and affordable travel with friendly service.



Tigerair Australia remains focused on putting our customers at the core of everything we do. We know that departing and arriving on time safely is important to our customers, and we are proud of our exceptional on time performance record and would like to share it with you.

Our efforts have been highlighted in recent times through a concerted effort in the area of customer satisfaction, including significantly enhanced punctuality performance and the introduction of a number of customer facing initiatives announced over the past 18 months as part of our continued transformation programme. In 2015, Tigerair had the best on time performance of the major domestic low cost carriers (84.6% for the calendar year for departures1). Last year, Tigerair also recorded the lowest cancellation rate of all major domestic airlines (0.9% for 20151) and was three times less likely to cancel than our key competitor on like for like routes.
