Tigerair cans Melbourne-Townsville route
Service will cease from 1 August and travellers moved to Virgin Australia flights.
Tigerair is known for its no-frills service, bringing Aussies some of the lowest fares in the country with connections all around Australia. A recent announcement from the carrier, though, has revealed that it's planning to cease its Melbourne-Townsville route.
The relatively new route had only started on 22 June 2017 with full price fares from $129 each way.
Starting from 1 August 2018, the route will no longer operate and Tigerair plans to re-accommodate passengers who are affected by the change on Virgin Australia services via Sydney or Brisbane.
Any travellers impacted should be contacted directly by the airline and provided with an updated flight itinerary. See Tigerair's website for full details and contact information.
The Melbourne-Townsville route will still be operated by rival low-cost carrier Jetstar with direct services, or with Virgin Australia or Qantas with a stopover in Brisbane.
