Tiger Airways is preparing to launch flights between
Melbourne and Sydney Airports. The flights will commence from 3 July
2009 with up to four flights between both destinations daily.
Tiger Airways Australia Managing Director,

been long anticipated by travellers and is a result of feedback
from the public, both in Victoria and New South Wales.
“Tiger Airways has always been proud to be
Melbourne’s home-town airline, and now we’re even more thrilled to
be adding this important interstate route to our schedule, which
is great news for visitors and locals alike.
“Melbourne-Sydney is one of the most popular
routes in both Australia and indeed the whole world. With Tiger
Airways new flight route, more people than ever will be able to
travel between the two destinations more often and for the first
time at consistently low fares. This is particularly pleasing at a
