Finally the day has arrived which I have been wishing for, as a former Hobartian, for almost a decade now.
And this is that Virgin Blue is opening a Canberra-Hobart direct route in April!
Flights on sale for $99 each way at the moment.
This is great for ex-Tasmanians such as myself, Canberrans wanting a stunning new accessible holiday destination, and business people travelling each way alike.
No more hanging about in bloody Melbourne airport, and cutting travel time by as much as half.
