Media Release: Golden opportunity for tourism and jobs with additional Avalon flights

18 /06/ 2015 Comments are Closed

Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) welcomes the announcement that Jetstar will introduce daily flights between the Gold Coast and Avalon Airport, as a result of its agreement with the State Government that sees the continuation of the airport’s passenger operations.

“It is wonderful for Western Victoria to have direct access to a population of more than 500,000 people around the Gold Coast airport. The additional 65,000 seats a year coming into Avalon will provide a significant opportunity to showcase all the region has to offer throughout greater Geelong, the Bellarine Peninsula and the Great Ocean Road,” said VTIC Chief Executive Dianne Smith.

“We commend the State Government for working together with Jetstar to reach this outcome and deliver a win for Victorian tourism.”

VTIC applauds Jetstar’s commitment to work closely with local and state tourism bodies to promote the greater Geelong region in the South East Queensland market and looks forward to the release of the second of the two additional routes under the agreement.
