Tigerair Australia announces a new route between Hobart and Gold Coast, providing the only direct, low cost travel option between the two popular tourism destinations.

From Thursday 7 December Tigerair will operate four weekly return services between the Island state and Gold Coast on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

At the same time, the airline will also add four additional return services on the existing popular Melbourne - Hobart route to meet growing demand.

In total, up to sixteen additional return services will provide close to 3,000 additional visitor seats through Hobart Airport weekly from 7 December.

The new flights are perfectly timed for leisure travellers, departing Hobart at 8:50am (AEDT) to arrive into the Gold Coast at 10:20am (AEDT). The return services depart Gold Coast Airport at 10:50am (AEDT) and arrive into Hobart at 2:30pm (AEDT).


These new flights launching in December provide a welcome boost for tourism in both cities, covering the upcoming peak summer holiday travel period and the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast in April. “This is great news for Tasmanian tourism, for the local economy and most of all, for consumers,” said Tigerair Australia Acting CEO Peter Wilson.


To celebrate the new services between Hobart and Gold Coast, a limited amount of fares on the new route will be available from just copy0* each way (on the first two flights both ways).
