Tigerair suspends all flights, nationwide

TIGER has stopped all flights across the country and its parent company Virgin Australia will operate on a further reduced capacity.

But Cairns remained unaffected by Virgin's cuts so far.

The Virgin Australia Group made the announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange this morning.
