Other Frequently Asked Questions?


Why Is Tiger unique - why does it do things differently?
•  We provide our customers with choice to pick and choose what extras (if any) they wish to pay for accordingly. Don’t want food? Don’t pay for it. Don’t want checked luggage? Don’t pay for it. There’s no reason your fare should cover someone else’s lunch. We’re all about stripping back costs in order to offer the seat at consistently great value fares.


What else can I get?
•  Don’t want just the basics? Then pick and choose the extras you want. Choose your own seat, get some food for the journey a few dollars or triple the amount of checked luggage you can bring along for a set fee. It all depends on your needs and how much you want to spend on the journey. Tiger customers typically like to save on their airfare so they can spend more when they get to where they are going.


Why do I have to be there 45 minutes before take-off to check in?
•  Actually, we recommend you arrive around 1.5 – two hours before your scheduled departure to ensure you have plenty of time. 45 minutes before take-off is when we stop letting you check in. Tiger Airways works hard to get you where you are going on time. To achieve that, we need to be strict about stopping check-in 45 minutes before departure. Give us 45 minutes to do all our pre-departure checks and make sure everything’s in order and we’ll get you to your destination affordably and with enhanced reliability. We think it’s a fair deal.


How much baggage can I bring?
•  You get 10kg of carry-on luggage for free (maximum two carry-on items with the combined weight of no more than a total of 10kg). You can pay a set fee to have additional checked in luggage (see www.tigerairways.com for details and costs). If you want to pack the kitchen sink, that’s fine – but it’s only fair that you pay a bit extra for it, because other people shouldn’t have to pay for your luggage, just as you shouldn’t have to pay for theirs.


Why is it cheaper if I pay for baggage on the internet?
•  If you let us know how much luggage you’re bringing in advance, we’ll save you more cash. You see, it allows us to be more efficient at check-in and we can plan our baggage handling in advance. This saves us money, so it saves you money.
