Low-cost carrier Tigerair Australia was recently named the cheapest airline in the world in Rome2rio's 2018 Global Flight Price Ranking.

The report analysed economy fares on international and domestic airlines displayed on the search engine over a two-month period to paint a picture of global pricing (in US$ per km). It produced a ranking of the 50 cheapest carriers overall, as well lists of the cheapest domestic and international carriers.

With flights costing $0.06 per km (US dollars) on average, Tigerair Australia was crowned the cheapest airline in the world overall.

The internal airline was once voted Australia's "worst airline," according to Rome2rio, who says the airline has "turned its fortunes around" since it was bought by Virgin Australia Group in 2014.

The airline told us they've just introduced a new "Tigerbites" food-market inspired menu that features veggie and gluten-free snacks, as well as bitesize chicken and chips, hot mac and cheese bake, and espresso martinis.
