If you’re looking to make 2016 your year of simple travel, Avalon Airport is very pleased to assist, with two more fabulous destinations announced by Jetstar at the end of last year.
From 27 March Jetstar will fly direct to Hobart and Adelaide from Avalon, meaning the airport’s trademark “flying made easy” can now get passengers to these two wonderful cities without any hassle.
There will be seven new flights per week – three to Adelaide on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and four to Hobart on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
The destinations have been chosen in response to overwhelming requests from people living in the region.
Adelaide is of course famous for its festivals, including the Adelaide Fringe Festival, the Cabaret Festival and Womadelaide, and it’s only an hour’s drive from the stunning wineries of the Barossa Valley.
Hobart is at the top of many people’s travel lists nowadays, with a perfect mix of the historical and the contemporary, with Salamanca Place and Markets, Port Arthur, and a ferry ride to the ever popular MONA.
Avalon Airport CEO, Justin Giddings is excited about the growth. “We’re thrilled to be expanding our repertoire this year with these fantastic new destinations – just as we’re delighted to have the opportunity of welcoming visitors from Adelaide and Hobart to our stunning region. These are very exciting times!”
Jetstar began flying direct from Avalon to the Gold Coast late last year, and those flights, as well as flights to Sydney are selling well.
