TigerAir wings it to Bali

Tigerair Australia will be winging its way to Bali at the end of March.

The inaugural direct services to Bali will start on March 23 2016.

The airline has recently recruited more than 100 new cabin crew in the months ahead of the new Bali international services who will all be trained in Victoria.

Tigerair Australia CEO Rob Sharp says the basing of three rebranded and reconfigured B-737s at Melbourne

Airport further demonstrates Tigerair Australia’s commitment to the state of Victoria.

“Tigerair Australia is proud to call Victoria and Melbourne home. Already more than 60% of our services touch Victoria. The number of aircraft based in Victoria will grow from 7 to 10 or by more than 40% by the end of March.

“Tigerair Australia’s new services to Bali will deliver more than 2500 additional seats through Melbourne Airport weekly.”

The Boeing 737-800 aircraft will provide a mix of free and paid wireless inflight entertainment for use

on passenger’s own devices for the international services. Passengers will be able to purchase or pre-

purchase food and beverages from Tigerair’s extensive inflight menu and purchase extra luggage

over and above the 7kg free carry-on luggage allowance if required.

The new services will feature all economy seating for up to 180 passengers, with five rows of extra legroom seating – 18 seats at the front of the cabin and 12 seats in exit rows that can be purchased in advance of travel for extra comfort.

Fares to Denpasar onboard Tigerair’s B737-800 aircraft are now available at tigerair.com.au

They are priced – Melbourne from $169, Adelaide from $139 and from Perth from $119.
