• Tiger to commence new five-weekly service to Mackay in December

• Fares starting from $99.95

Sydney Airport welcomes the news that Tiger Airways will commence a new service to Mackay on 17 December, flying five times a week from Sydney.


“Tiger is going from strength to strength as it continues to grow its route network and starting a service to Mackay just before the holiday period is great news for travellers,” Sydney Airport CEO Kerrie Mather said.


“With fares starting from $99.95, now everyone can afford to take a break over Christmas.


“Mackay is the gateway to some great tourist destinations like the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef, but also supports a growing mining sector, so it makes sense to have more direct services from Australia’s largest city.


“Tiger’s resurgence this year has been great for domestic travellers, offering more choice and competition on popular routes.


“Tiger set up a base in Sydney earlier this year and we’ve seen strong growth in domestic traffic as a result.”
