New flights from Australia to Bali04 February 2016 by News Desk
Tigerair has launched new short-haul services from Australia to the holiday island of Bali.
The airline will begin direct flights to Bali on March 23 from Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth and has recruited over 100 new cabin crew to service the new routes.
Tigerair will use three Boeing 737-800s on the routes and flights will be all-economy class with 180 seats including five rows of ‘extra legroom’ seating that can be reserved for an additional charge starting from $30.
The airline is currently offering one-way fares to Bali from Melbourne starting at $169, Adelaide from $139 and from Perth starting at $119.
Lily D’Ambrosio, Victoria Minister for Industry, says Tigerair’s new service from Melbourne Airport will create 70 new full time jobs and boost Victoria’s aviation industry, which is worth over $1bn to the state economy.
