Ex­tra hol­i­day flights

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

LO­CAL res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to the Whit­sun­days will ben­e­fit from two ad­di­tional flights in and out of the re­gion dur­ing the up­com­ing sum­mer hol­i­day pe­riod.

Tig­erAir Aus­tralia has added ad­di­tional re­turn ser­vices from Syd­ney to the Whit­sun­day Coast on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 29 and Mon­day, Jan­uary 5.

The flights will leave Syd­ney at 1pm and ar­rive at Proser­pine at 2.30pm. They will then de­part the Whit­sun­days at 3pm, ar­riv­ing in Syd­ney at 6.15pm.

Tig­erair Aus­tralia Com­mer­cial Di­rec­tor, Adam Rowe, said the air­line was con­fi­dent the ad­di­tional seats, which went on sale last Fri- day, would prove popular with leisure trav­ellers still con­sid­er­ing travel plans this sum­mer.

“The sum­mer hol­i­day pe­riod is typ­i­cally one of the most popular leisure travel pe­ri­ods of the year [and] popular hol­i­day hot spots like the Whit­sun­days, Ho­bart, Gold Coast, Perth, Syd­ney and Mel­bourne will all ben­e­fit from a boost in vis­i­tor seats dur­ing the Christ­mas – New Year pe­riod,” he said.

Mr Rowe said as al­ways, the best value fares were snapped up first.

“And it’s the early bird gets the worm as the say­ing goes, so we urge bar­gain seek­ers to jump on­line as soon as pos­si­ble to se­cure the best sum­mer travel deals,” he said.
