Australia travel 'given a boost'

Article content

15 December 2009

Tiger Airways has celebrated its first Sydney-Gold Coast flight, with the organisation's communications manager claiming it will double journeys on the route in 2010.

Vanessa Regan said that sales are always very strong for the Gold Coast itinerary at this time of year, but the Sydney-Gold Coast operation is proving particularly popular.

She stated: "Our inaugural flight … is near capacity and pre-sold seats on the Sydney-Gold Coast route have been so strong that we are doubling the amount of flights … from early February 2010."

This means there will be 14 weekly services travelling between the destinations, Ms Regan added, which will provide seats for an extra 262,000 passengers visiting the region every year.

Gold Coast Airport chief operating officer Paul Donovan welcomed the move, noting that it provides holidaymakers extra opportunities to tour the area.

The news comes in the same week that Qantas revealed upgraded security screen facilities at the Perth terminal, which the company stated will improve check-in times and increase customer satisfaction.
