Tigerair to resume direct Gold Coast to Hobart service

Gold Coasters will be able to fly to Hobart year-round with Tigerair Australia from October 30, with the airline announcing they will be offering a Gold Coast to Hobart route as a permanent service.

The airline will offer three flights a week to and from the Tasmanian capital on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The announcement comes after Tigerair trialled the Gold Coast – Hobart route last summer.


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.”

To celebrate the return of the route, Tigerair is offering a sale fare of $69.95 one way between the two destinations from today.
