Victoria’s Minister for Industry Lily D’Ambrosio helped officially unveil the first of Tigerair’s three Boeing 737-800 aircraft at Melbourne Airport on Feb 1.
“Tigerair’s new international service to Bali from Melbourne Airport will create 70 new full time jobs and boost Victoria’s economy,” said Lily D’Ambrosio.
He added, “We are working to create jobs and grow Victoria’s aviation industry, which is worth more than $1 billion to the state’s economy.”
The airline will provide daily direct flights to Bali from March 23 2016, which will be its first short-haul international service from Australia.
The new service to Bali will carry more than 2,500 additional international visitors a week, creating new jobs and boosting the economy.
TigerAir has employed 70 new cabin crew for the service to Bali and an extra 50 cabin crew for other domestic routes, with all staff being trained in Victoria.
The company employs over 600 staff in Melbourne, including cabin crew, pilots, and ground handling and maintenance.
