Tiger expands services

Tiger Airways Australia has announced four new domestic routes: Melbourne to Alice Springs, Sydney to Alice Springs, Melbourne to Sunshine Coast and Sydney to Cairns.

Tiger will recommence operations on the Sunshine Coast-to-Melbourne route with four flights per week on 27 March, building to a daily service by June.

Sydney-Cairns will begin on 4 April.

The Alice Springs services will commence from 9 April.

Tiger Airways has already announced services between Sydney and Coffs Harbour from 15 February.

“The flights are perfectly timed to begin just as the new tourist season is firing up and is expected to bring an additional 150,000 new seats into the territory,” said NT minister for tourism Matt Conlan.

Tiger’s commercial director, Carly Brear, says “We are confident that a lot of our current and future customers will be very happy that we are bringing Tiger’s low fares to more of Australia,” she said.

“Tiger’s new services to Cairns and Sunshine Coast further increase our presence in Queensland, which is an ever popular state for our customers to visit and also provide additional connectivity for Queensland residents who have been extremely supportive of Tiger’s services to date.

“I’m particularly thrilled to tell the people of Alice Springs that we have listened. We’ve been inundated with requests for Tiger’s low cost flights to serve Central Australia, a community that currently lacks low cost options and critically is so heavily reliant on tourism.”

This month Tiger Airways Australia will celebrate flying its 10 millionth customer since Australian operations began in November 2007.
