Cheap Flights from Melbourne to Adelaide with Tiger Airways

Starting November 1, Tiger Airways will resume flights between Melbourne and Adelaide.  To celebrate the newly restored route, the airline is offering up 5000 one-way seats between November 1 and mid-2013 for $19.95.  Tiger Airways chief executive Andrew David said that in time there might be extra flights added to the route, as well as additional flights connecting Adelaide to other destinations.


The resurrection of the old route was made possible because the airline made a deal with the State Government that allowed them to keep more than $1 million in taxpayer funding.  In effect, this cuts down what the airline has to pay back, as they were given a loan of $2.25 million to get themselves established in Adelaide in 2009.  The airline has purchased an additional Airbus A320 and there will be an additional 2520 seats to Adelaide each week.
