Budget carrier Tiger Airways will be renamed Tigerair and change its livery as part a group-wide rebranding exercise.

The first plane in the new livery was unveiled at Melbourne sees the leaping tiger logo replaced with a new design that Tigerair said aimed to convey a corporate personality that is “warm, passionate and genuine”.

I;m not sure that I'll ever think of a tiger as " warm, passionate and genuine."

Perhaps they should have rebranded as "Tigger Airways" and had the cartoon figure on the tail:

That would be a much better "corporate personality" than this warm/passionate/genuine nonsense. At least they'd have half a chance at delivering on the former.

This branding change won't change the general public opinion of Tiger Airways. One day I'll summon up the courage to fly an LCC like Tigerair to diversify my logbook..but I'm a sucker for the old fashioned courtesies offered by airlines though, I'd fly on any other airline in australia first though.

Pretty nice logo to be honest. Not bad at all.
I liked the Tiger image previously but the font that accompanied it wasnt to my liking.

The painting on the engines is cool as well.
Great work by Tiger.

I don't understand this LCC bashing. If you don't like LCC:s don't fly with them. Obviously there is a demand for their products so why belittle them?
I always find it funny to see people drinking wines with screwcorks but at the same time being to good to fly lowcosts...

What some might want to consider is that calling Lowcost airlines cheap is marketing them. They want to be seen as cheap that's their entire business concept and no one is happier than them when its repeated...

Tiger Air is a decent lowcost, not as extreme as Ryanair but still an airline that keeps the other carriers honest. I'm actually more pleased with them these days when I can choose who to fly because they and the mentioned Scoot drive down the fares of the full service airlines. hence why i have flown Qantas a fair bit lately, good prices and good service. That would never have happened with a pure duopoly...
Now I am used to lowcost carriers so I know and understand the pros and cons with lowcosts and don't get shocked when I have to pay for extra luggage or food or have to come on time.

Tiger Airways thought this way too. They thought that they could just offer cheap fares and people would come. Unfortunately this has resulted in a tarnished brand image. The airline isn't bad - yes they've had their rough patches with the Australian grounding and a poor period of on time performance which have done their brand no good. An airline needs marketing, an image. Scoot has done a fantastic job of this.

I can only wish TR the best of luck.

I wouldn't underestimate Virgin Australia's ability to turn this airline around, if what they've done with their own brand first, is anything to go by.

They've done a terrific job to 'corporatise' cheap and cheerful Virgin Blue into Virgin Australia and a genuine competitor to QANTAS, that also leaves room beneath to re-introduce Tiger (Tigerair) to take on Jetstar.

It may seem a bit 'naff' now to us but knowing Virgin's track record, I bet they know what they're doing and will make this work. Good luck to them!

"Our new logo is simplified to depict the personality of the new Tigerair brand — warm, passionate and genuine.

The rounded fonts depict friendliness while the two dots, the first in grey and the second in orange, symbolises Tigerair's role in connecting our customers from one point to another. The different coloured dots also depict a friendly wink.

The orange semi-circle acts as a subtle reference to a tiger's tail, as well as a smile, representative of the passion and commitment in everything we do.

http://thedesignair.net/2013/07/03/a...-learns-how-to-change-its-stripes/

I am in agreement too, it's cheap, it's a type face and they've just changed the colours of the dots on the eyes, and added a tail out of a G. I'm not genius, but even I could have done that. They've 'blandalised' the airline.

Instead of patching up a company's bad reputation with a paint job, why not fix the actual airline. Are people really that dumb that they'll go 'Hey I didn't want to fly Tiger Airways, as it was a bit dodgy.... but wait, what's this? TigerAir flying exactly the same route? They can't be the same. I'm sold. They have a 'g' that looks a bit like a tiger's tail."

Really? I mean... really?

Instead of warm and passionate it says cheap and uninspired. "We couldn't go to the trouble of hiring professionals to design a new corporate brand so we had the (unpaid) interns come up with some ideas." Reminds me of ValuJet. Slap Critter on the side and your done.

So this is the major re-branding? Shortening the name and changing the font? All flights from now on will definitely be totally and completely sold out!!

It does seem a mishmash of half-thought-through ideas. The nacelle bands are a cute echo of the fin but, as many have posted, there is now an uncomfortable clash with the typography.

(*Personal view: the 'wings' of the 'W' could have been far more striking had the reds continued down from the fin and 'turned' between stabiliser and belly grey. The upswing in the gold bands could then have wrapped over the crown of the aft hull forward of the fin.)

Stylised tiger stripes could be done without making it 'imprisoned' - and if it did look like kitty was behind bars, well, there's always that wank - sorry, wink - and a smile up front. Sorry: font.
(I couldn't find a smiley for 'meeow'.)

The logo was unveiled today in the Philippines but it's missing the Tigerair logo. Just has the tail stripes. Although the livery of its predecessor SEAIR was incredibly bland, it was popular because it carried the title "It's More Fun in the Philippines." Haven't heard whether this deviation would continue with Tigerair or if it will eventually adopt the Tigerair titles on the side of the fuselage. Seems odd to me that they would unveil an incomplete white fuselage. Not sure who will win the battle of the Philippines - Air Asia or Tiger Air. Tiger Air plans to get the Philippine fleet up to 25 within the next five years.

Not sure if Tigger has become more profitable but is there a chance SQ would want to buy them over fully and rebrand them as Scoot?

QF and VA haven't been that affected by TT so far so not sure why you feel it is so cut and dry.

With TT moving into the VA family, I expect them to do better though as the airlines capacity shift to better suit the routes the group needs covered.

facebook is like traveladvisor, it can be very easily manipulated.

There are organisations out there saying they will give you 1000's of good comments &/or 1000's of bad comments for your competitors, for a small fee

+ am sure lots of QF staff, worried about their jobs are posting many of the -ve comments about Tiger, who's cost base must be lowest in the country.

Wonder if VA will start sending TT across the Tasman on some of the thinner routes. Wouldn't require a lot.

Awful titling (the "tail" is about as clumsy as it gets) and the slither of stripes on the engine nacelles, while having potential, is so meagerly applied it looks like they just changed out part of the nacelle for a spare.
