Tigerair Australia to launch new low cost services between CBR and MLB

Tigerair Australia today announced a new route providing daily return services between Canberra and Melbourne.

In great news for the people of Melbourne and Canberra, the new service will mean over 2500 additional visitor seats every week through both airports.  

Details of the service, including schedules, will be announced this week, and fares will go on sale later this week on the Tigerair Australia website www.tigerair.com.au.

These flights will generate $17 million a year in the Gross Regional Product of the Canberra catchment and, importantly, create an additional 124 jobs.

This is such an exciting time for aviation in Canberra. International flights will start for the first time next month and we can now add this low cost link to Melbourne that Canberrans have been crying out for.
