Tiger tweaks Mackay service
By admin

Tiger Airways has revised its Mackay-Sydney schedule in response to local demand, as it works to grow visitor numbers through the North Queensland airport.

The updated schedule, in place from early February, will feature a new Wednesday service added in response to demand from the resources sector.

In addition the low cost carrier is working with local transfer operator Whitsundays 2 Everywhere to stimulate leisure travel to the region by offering transfer solutions for Tiger customers between Mackay Airport and Airlie Beach.

"The retimed and new weekly services between Mackay and Sydney commencing from early February and promotion of regular transfer solutions to/from Airlie Beach are just two examples of responding to the needs of our customers so we can continue to stimulate and grow the air travel market with our consistently great value airfares," Tiger commercial director Carly Brear said.

Mackay Airport general manager Rob Porter said the additional Wednesday service would be "well received" by those in the resources sector, with the changes set to boost traffic through the airport.

"Visitors to Mackay and the Whitsundays will now have a mid-week opportunity to access this spectacular tourism destination, supported by smooth transit connections through the Airlie Beach," he said.
