Tiger started fly­ing di­rect from Syd­ney to Proser­pine on Tues­day. What will this do for the re­gion?

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

Corinn Stickland, Cannonvale: I reckon it’s great. Syd­ney is a lot of people’s first stop in Aus­tralia. They can see the Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge and then come straight to the Whit­sun­days. Den­nis Ever­est, Cannonvale: It will bring a lot more tourists. It would be won­der­ful if they in­tro­duce a flight from Mel­bourne, but then, I’ve got vested in­ter­ests. Grant Briskey, Cannonvale: It’s got to open the place up more. It’s re­ally go­ing to ben­e­fit the area. Jordy Matthews, Cannonvale: I think it’s a lot eas­ier than driv­ing to Mackay. It’s heaps bet­ter. Kim­ber­ley Nunn, Cannonvale: It will make it much more at­trac­tive to come here as it will make travel eas­ier. Shane Smith, Ju­bilee Pocket: It will stop hav­ing to wait in Bris­bane for six hours and it will al­low people to pop up here for a long weekend. It will also im­prove em­ploy­ment at the air­port. Tina Webb, Cannonvale: I think it will im­prove ac­cess to the re­gion and should cause ex­cel­lent com­pe­ti­tion be­tween the air­lines.
