The Age has a story on Tiger Airways plans to give up on Canberra in favour of the busier Sydney-Melbourne route.
- The low-cost airline is not offering flights between Canberra and either Melbourne or Adelaide after early October. Asked about its plans for Canberra, Tiger’s managing director Shelley Roberts would only say that it was reviewing its services to and from the capital city.
But industry insiders expect the Singapore Airlines-backed carrier to pull out of Canberra.
If we want airline competition the public service has to embrace it. Oh well.
