The seats – priced from $39.95 between Melbourne and Sydney, $59.95 between Melbourne and Gold Coast, $69.95 between Melbourne and Brisbane and $109.95 between Melbourne and Perth – are for travel from March 26 to October 27, 2012.
“Since resuming domestic services on 12 August 2011 customers have embraced Tiger’s affordable airfares coupled with industry leading reliability,” said Tiger Airways Head of Marketing and Communications, Vanessa Regan.
“We’re now ramping up our new season schedule (which runs from end of March to end of October) to cater for demand on our existing popular four routes,” he said.
Regan said that Tiger is expected to once more expand its reach around Australia in “due course”, with new routes set to be announced in 2012.
