Airline offers flights ‘cheaper than a carton of beer’!June 24th, 2009 - 2:26 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, June 24 (ANI): Low-cost airline Tiger Airways is offering travellers flights to destinations around Australia that are cheaper than a carton of beer.
The airline launched the “Just Pay Taxes and Charges” sale as its latest discount scheme against rivals Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin Blue.
According to The Advertiser, flyers can pay as little as 25.51 dollars for one-way flights from Sydney to Melbourne, or 23.33 dollars for Gold Coast to Melbourne or 22.78 dollars for Adelaide to Perth, reports News.com.au.
The 30,000 seats for several destinations, however, must be taken on a Tuesday or a Wednesday between August 4 and March 24.
The fares include up to 7kg of carry-on luggage, but travellers would be charged 10 dollars for up to 15kg and 35 dollars for up to 25kg of check-in luggage.
Tiger commercial director Steve Burns said: “For the price of a couple of movie tickets or a few beers you can travel some of Tiger Airways’ most popular routes midweek.
“While everyone’s tightening their belts in the current economic climate, it’s nice to know you can still take a short break or get that work-life balance back on track with incredible deals like this.” (ANI)
