Campaign to lure Sydney Siders

As the temperature starts to drop what could be better than a few days getaway to the beautiful Whitsundays?

Now is the time to book with some great 3-day Whitsundays holiday packages set to tempt Sydneysiders as Mackay Airport and Tiger Airways launch their first joint online campaign titled This Could Be You……

Tiger Airways offers three direct flights per week from Sydney to Mackay with fares each way on sale from just $69.95* each way. There are excellent connections from Mackay Airport via Whitsundays 2 Everywhere provide an easy link to this exciting holiday destination.

Mackay Airport General Manager, Rob Porter, said these are fantastic, not to be missed offers. “Airlie Beach is at the heart of the beautiful Whitsundays. Visitors can choose from a range of tours to enjoy the islands and reef by day and each evening soak up Airlie’s relaxed holiday ambience with delicious dining and fun nightlife,” Mr Porter said.

“If you live in Sydney these excellent deals are the perfect excuse for a tropical getaway. If you live in Mackay it’s a great opportunity for your friends and family living in Sydney or other parts of New South Wales to visit you and enjoy what your region has to offer at an unbeatable price.”

Tiger Airways Head of Communications, Vanessa Regan, said Tiger’s consistently great value fares stimulate air travel in Australia and grow the market. “Essentially it’s a win-win for tourism, the local economy and for the consumer,” Ms Regan said. “Mackay has many tourism drawcards but equally our services to Mackay can be promoted as a gateway to the beautiful Whitsundays and we’re thrilled to partner with local operators in the Whitsundays to help boost travel to the region just in time for the onset of winter.”

The offer is only open until Tuesday 7 May and with information and bookings available via the Mackay Airport and Tiger Airways Facebook pages and websites or through campaign partners Sydney Airport, Tiger Airways, Whitsundays 2 Everywhere and accommodation providers Marina Shores Airlie Beach Whitsundays, Airlie Beach Hotel, Big 4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort, Airlie Beach Motor Lodge and X Base.
