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