Great news for the Nations Capital to have another domestic airline service Canberra. A win:win for travellers to soak up the Melbourne’s sporting and cultural scene and for Melbournians to visit the Nations Capital’s educational, art and cultural, the grand foreign embassies and the ‘bush capital’ generally.
Lets hope this is a long-standing competitive commercial arrangement offering customer quality and regular on-time services.
The ACT has seen a gaggle of commercial domestic airline operators offering Canberrans this and have failed in the past to deliver. Remember Rex Airlines, then Brindabella and Jetstar – they have all flown the coop.
And I also hope the ACT Government has not given any financial incentives to Tigreair Australia. This is the second time for Tigerair to service Canberra.
