The number of domestic Tigerair flights will be slashed, as Virgin Australia struggles to cut costs.

It follows a statutory net loss of $97 million for the second half of 2019, compared to $55 million for the same time the year prior.

The airline is dumping routes it's found to be unprofitable, as it grapples with a market that's been badly hurt by the coronavirus outbreak.

Virgin chief executive Paul Scurrah says COVID-19 has had a "significant effect" on the travel industry.

Seven A320 aircrafts will also be removed from its fleet by October, bringing the number to eight.
