First Adelaide; now the Gold Coast. Hobart gets connected.
First Jetstar announced direct flights between Hobart and Adelaide and now Tigerair Australia has announced a new route between Hobart and Gold Coast, providing the only direct, low-cost travel option between the two popular tourism destinations.
Starting from December 7, Tigerair will operate four weekly return services between the Island state and Gold Coast on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
At the same time, the airline will also add four additional return services each week on the existing Melbourne-Hobart route to meet growing demand.
In total, up to 16 additional return services will provide close to 3,000 additional visitor seats through Hobart Airport each week.
The new flights are timed for leisure travellers, departing Hobart at 8:50am (AEDT) to arrive into the Gold Coast at 10:20am (AEDT). The return services depart Gold Coast Airport at 10:50am (AEDT) and arrive into Hobart at 2:30pm (AEDT).
“This new route provides the only direct, low-cost link between two very popular travel destinations providing faster, cheaper access to both cities for tourist, budget and leisure travellers," Tigerair Australia acting CEO Peter Wilson
“Our great-value fares grow and stimulate air travel in this country. These new flights launching in December provide a welcome boost for tourism in both cities, covering the upcoming peak summer holiday travel period and the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast in April."
