TigerAir has just announced it will be returning to Northern Territory shores as the fifth airline to resume operation in Darwin in the last year.
The Asian Regional airline announced a new route to Brisbane, which may mean residents of Darwin property see more domestic visitors coming through as the airline plans to offer low cost fares between the cities.
Darwin is a gateway into Asia and a "must visit" destination in Australia. As well as allowing more domestic visitors to come to the city, it will also make it easier for residents of real estate in Darwin to travel to the south of Australia.
The new airline and routes show the work of the government to create a campaign promoting the Northern Territory as a great holiday destination have paid off.
"It’s a great indicator of the strength and confidence in the Territory aviation market,” Minister for Transport Peter Styles said.
Flights are set to begin in April, in time for the dry season.
The return of another airline to Darwin indicates the strength of the state's economy and illustrates it is "open for business," according to Mr Styles.
