Tiger Airways Australia today moved its Perth Airport domestic operations from Terminal 3 to Terminal 2, where it joined Skywest Airlines (now Virgin Australia Regional Airlines) and Alliance Airlines.

The first Tiger Airways Australia aircraft to arrive at Terminal 2 was VH-VNQ Airbus A320-232 (cn 5218), operating flight TT184 from Melbourne, which arrived at 17:55. The aircraft then departed at 18:57 as TT185 back to Melbourne.

This leaves Virgin Australia as the only other operator left at Terminal 3, although Qantas has arranged with Perth Airport to gradually take over Terminal 3 as part of expanding its Perth domestic hub.

        The plan since the 1980s was for all terminals to be consolidated at ‘Airport Central’ (near Terminal 1).
        This is still the plan, scheduled for around 2025.

      Tigerair Australia operates from T2, but if you have any doubts, I would recommend contacting the airline.

      Hi Karen,
      You will need to check with your airline closer to the date of travel, but the airlines are operating services today (2 August 2016).

      Hi Sudesh,
      You will need to contact Tiger Airways directly – we have no affiliation with them.

    Perth airport what a joke, domestic here international there. As the above mentions totally useless planning , pathetic it not only confuses me as a local , what about overseas visitors. Useless useless Airport, state of the art my A.. .

    And the only people who benefit from this sub standard airport are the greedy taxi drivers who like to do circles around the city to non English speaking people, before arriving at their destination. Get a bloody train their to the airport , like a civilised city would do. Perth is the worst.

      The airport is being consolidated near Terminal 1 in 2025, which is when Qantas will move its operations over.
      The Forrestfield – Airport Link rail line to the airport is being constructed now. Construction of a train station is underway near the control tower, and another station is being built on the west side, on Brearley Avenue.
