Tiger poll ends, Alice most wanted destination

Tiger Airways Australia’s online voting poll has now closed and the airline can reveal the five most voted for destinations from the poll that has been running for the past six weeks. In consecutive order based on number of votes:

Top five voted destinations:
1. Alice Springs
2. Mackay
3. Hervey Bay/Fraser Coast
4. Avalon
5. Rockhampton

“We would like to thank everyone who has voted for their favourite destination for Tiger to consider flying to next,” says Carly Brear, commercial director, Tiger Airways Australia. “We’re a volume business and we go where consumer demand dictates. For that reason, it’s fantastic to have received so much support from around Australia for our online voting poll.

“As we said from the outset, the voting poll is one way we can gauge customer sentiment and demand for our services. We’ve had over 15,000 votes in total through the poll and have been overwhelmed by the support, particularly for Alice Springs and Mackay, which have held the top spot between them for the duration of the poll.

“We’ve already announced a return to Mackay (last week) and we are keen to introduce services to a number of new destinations in the next phase of our development. While demand is the most important factor, there are a number of other factors we need to consider before confirming a new destination, such as competitive environment, seasonality and support from tourism and airport authorities. Due to the nature of the airline planning process, these discussions can take some time.”
