Tigerair announce permanent Sunday service Sydney – Whitsunday Coast

By Mark Beale

Due to increased demand, Tigerair have announced new Sunday services from Sydney to the Whitsunday Coast with travel commencing from 25 October, 2015.

Mayor Jenny Whitney said the current Monday evening service was put in place to cater for the school holidays and peak season from late July through to the end of October, which will revert to the permanent Sunday flight from October 25 onwards.

“This is another great coup for the region and a strong indication of the success and growth of the Whitsunday Coast Airport,” Mayor Whitney said.

“This will no doubt provide another welcome boost to the region’s tourism industry, and provide greater flexibility for our community.

“I thank Tigerair for their ongoing support and investment in the Whitsunday region.”

Tigerair Australia Commercial Director, Adam Rowe, said today’s announcement of a new permanent Sunday service is great news for the region.

“We have already responded to strong peak period demand by adding additional flights on Mondays during school holiday periods in 2015.

“We are now introducing Sunday flights permanently into the new season schedule which commences from 25 October 2015, providing nearly 19,000 additional visitor seats annually through Whitsunday Coast Airport,” said Mr Rowe.

The new Sunday service will depart Sydney at 9:10am and return from Whitsunday Coast at 11:15am. New services are on sale from 7 July, with travel commencing from 25 October, 2015.
