New Flights into the Whitsundays with Tigerair Australia

  • Written by Joanne Hennessy

Tigerair Australia has announced an additional 55,000 visitor seats into Whitsunday Coast airport per year, making it even easier to holiday in the Whitsundays from 23 March 2017. 

The airline will be increasing return services from Sydney to five weekly return services, and will be introducing four brand new return services from Brisbane.

The move has been welcomed by Tourism Whitsundays CEO, Craig Turner, as a real step towards improving connectivity into the world-famous destination.

“We are excited to see such a positive boost to the region, supporting the increase in international and domestic visitors every year to the Whitsundays,” he said today.

“The Whitsundays is an iconic holiday destination, with incredible natural wonders such as Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and Heart Reef.”

“Brisbane and Sydney are two of our top national markets, and more flights will mean greater access and flexibility for travellers flying into the region.”

Tourism Whitsundays will be partnering with Brisbane Airport Corporation and Tigerair Australia to launch a $30,000 digital and billboard marketing campaign to promote the new flight services.

To celebrate the exciting news, Tigerair has released a 'Brisbane Bonanza' sale from 1pm today, with fares on the new route between Brisbane and Whitsunday Coast from $49 at

Regular fares between Brisbane and the Whitsundays are expected to be available from $79.
