Tigerair has today revealed that it will name an aircraft "Sarah" following voting in the thousands for its "Name On A Plane" competition, which has been running on Tigerair's Facebook page since 15th July 2013.

The competition saw the Australian travelling public drum up support amongst their friends for the chance to win their name on the nose of Tigerair's newly branded A320 aircraft and also to take 15 of their friends to the Sunshine Coast next month on the winner's flight.

Tigerair Commercial Director Carly Brear says "It's been a lot of fun, with a wide variety of names coming in thick and fast over the last few weeks. The voting poll narrowed it down to the five most popular names last week (James, Daniel, Emily, Sarah and Michael) but ultimately voters have decided that the most popular name is Sarah."

The top ten Sarahs with the most assigned votes on Tigerair's Facebook page have each won a seat for themselves and 15 of their mates on a private flight to the Sunshine Coast in September.

Tigerair's top 10 Sarahs as voted for by Facebook fans are:

1. Sarah Shelley
2. Sarah Mills
3. Sarah Lowrie
4. Sarah Chippett
5. Sarah Pongracic
6. Sarah Chapman
7. Sarah McPherson
8. Sarah Lyons
9. Sarah Loughran
10. Sarah Green

"It's very fitting for the airline to name one of its planes after a dedicated fan. "During our recent rebrand we made clear our commitment to customers being at the heart of our focus as we reposition our airline for growth. The team felt it quite fitting to solidify this intent by putting the name of one of our fans on our aircraft and we can't wait for "Sarah" to visit our destinations across Australia. We are looking forward to welcoming our 10 winning Sarahs to take their mates to the Sunshine Coast on their self-named aircraft," says Ms Brear.
