Great news for tourists wanting to visit the Red Centre of Australia today with Tiger Airways announcing it will start flying into Alice Springs again starting late March.
This means an additional 150,000 seats each year will now be available with the cut-price airline with four flights a week from both Sydney and Melbourne.
Alice Springs’ residents have been lobby long and hard for Tiger to resume its flights after the airline was forced to abandon the route last year following safety issues.
The airline’s booking site was overwhelmed with people scrabbling to sign up for specially bargain-priced seats linked to the announcement. It’s been a huge boost for local tour operators who are a big local employer and were already planning for the new tourism season which kicks off shortly.
