“The Whitsundays is an iconic holiday destination, with incredible natural wonders such as Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and Heart Reef.”

“Brisbane and Sydney are two of our top national markets, and more flights will mean greater access and flexibility for travellers flying into the region.”

Tourism Whitsundays will be partnering with Brisbane Airport Corporation and Tigerair Australia to launch a $30,000 digital and billboard marketing campaign to promote the new flight services.

To celebrate the exciting news, Tigerair has released a 'Brisbane Bonanza' sale from 1pm today, with fares on the new route between Brisbane and Whitsunday Coast from $49 at
