Tigerair resumes Gold Coast-Hobart service

August 9, 2018

Gold Coasters will be able to fly to Hobart year-round with Tigerair Australia resuming its Gold Coast-Hobart route as a permanent service from October 30.

Southerners are also expected to boost visitor numbers to the city with the direct flights re-commencing ahead of the peak summer period.

The airline has announced a sale fare, with flights one way between the two destinations from $69.95 available from 9am today.

Tigerair will operate three flights per week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, arriving on the Gold Coast at 10:30am before returning to Hobart.

Queensland Airports Limited Business Development and Marketing Executive General Manager Adam Rowe welcomed the resumption of services, which are geared to leisure travellers.

“This was a popular service last summer season. It is great to see it back and to see it become a permanent service,” he said.

“The flights connect Australia’s premier tourist destination and one of Australia’s must-see destinations, Tasmania.

“These initial fares offer great value to visitors and locals coming to the Gold Coast and Hobart.”
