Cairns Airport CEO Kevin Brown said Tiger’s new day services were excellent news for the regional economy. "A daily domestic service calculated on average will provide an additional $75 million per annum in gross regional product and generate an additional 843 new jobs in the region," he said.
Must try and get that recent report from Bill Cummings on Cairns Airport as it certainly does sound like impressive job creation!"That Tiger will again operate services into Cairns on what has been voted Australia’s fastest growing route, just ahead of our peak season, is welcome news."
The previous budget Tiger service was also well used by Cairns locals for short breaks in Melbourne.
