For many of us, Alice Springs and the surrounding area is somewhere we’d love to visit but back out when we see the flight prices. Now, budget airline Tiger Airways is hoping to once again provide a much cheaper gateway to one of the country’s most iconic regions.

NT Airports Director of Airline and Airport Services, Jim Parashos, said the return of Tiger Airways to Central Australia was exciting news for tourism operators in the region.
‘Visitors once again have that cost-effective option for exploring Alice Springs and the Red Centre,’ he said. ‘This is a development that presents huge opportunities for the local tourism industry.’
