Tiger Airways have added a new route with low fares, announcing today that it will fly daily between Sydney and Adelaide from 31 July this year.
One-way fares on the route start from $48 including taxes and charges such as a $5 convenience fee charged for each electronic booking, per person, per sector.
This follows Tiger’s announcement of new daily flights between Melbourne and Sydney to commence 3 July 2009.
The new routes are part of the carrier’s new phase of continued growth and expansion throughout Australia, according to Shelley Roberts, Managing Director.
Roberts said the new routes would not only benefit customers in New South Wales and South Australia but also create jobs in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
The new Adelaide-Sydney service is expected to offer an additional 2,520 seats to travelers, which to South Australian Premier Mike Rann is very good news.
Rann said the new flights align with South Australia’s $4.5m tourism campaign which targets “busy professionals” and runs with the slogan ‘Isn’t It About Time’.
