Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Friday, 30 October 2009

Tiger Airways is expanding its low-cost paw print in Australia by adding a new A320 aircraft to its Adelaide base.

The addition of another new aircraft into the Adelaide base in early 2010 brings the total investment by Tiger Airways into South Australia to more than A$200 million.

Tiger Airways is also boosting the number of flights from its Melbourne Tullamarine base in the new year with additional services to Hobart, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Adelaide. These additional flights will go on sale today - Friday 30 October 2009 - and will add a further 250,000 annual visitor seats to and from Melbourne.

This is especially good news when so many other airlines are cutting back and streamlining as a result of the global financial crisis. Were bucking the trend, adding services and generating significant tourism benefits for South Australia and right around Australia, said Tiger Airways Australia Managing Director, Shelley Roberts. We opened our Adelaide crew base just a few months ago in March 2009 and were thrilled to be expanding our operation there once again, creating further new jobs in South Australia. We look forward to announcing our new flights from Adelaide very soon.

Tiger Airways will soon commence the recruitment drive for around 30 new positions including cabin crew and pilots, to be based in Adelaide.

In addition to announcing another new aircraft and more flights from Melbourne Tullamarine, Tiger Airways will soon be unveiling its flight schedule for the new season with millions of seats set to go on sale for travel period extending from April to October 2010.
