A Tiger Airways Australia party led by CEO Andrew David touched down at 10am (AEST) in Hobart Airport today to announce the return of the airline’s services between Melbourne and Hobart as of early November 2012 (subject to regulatory approval).
With up to three daily return services between Melbourne and Hobart commencing 1st November 2012, this will be a welcome increase in the available number of seats to and from the island’s capital.
Better – yet, flights go on sale today from $45.95* OW. It is hoped that other route developments will be announced shortly.
Daily flights from 1st November will depart Melbourne at 7:00 am and 6:00 pm and return respectively from Hobart at 8:45am and 7:45pm, making a day-trip to Tassie a consideration and at Tiger’s aggressive pricing – affordable.
A third service will be phased in for peak periods.
