Riding the Tiger to a boisterous welcome in Alice

Pirates, buxom maidens and daunting Vikings gave passengers of a full Tiger Airways flight from Sydney a boisterous welcome to Alice Springs at 9.30am today.
A flight from Melbourne was next, also a few minutes early.
The new direct services are selling at just under $60 one way, and will provide an additional 2880 seats a week – a major shot in the arm for the local tourist industry.
Tourism NT chief Tony Mayell says the NT Government is providing no subsidy for the services, but is spending $30,000 on promotions this financial year.

    Well done to the Minister, Mr Mayell, and locals who joined in the campaign to get Tiger back.
