Kiwis flock to Coast with daily flights from Auckland

Written on the 12 May 2009

 

GOLD Coast Airport is experiencing a Kiwi influx with direct daily services from Auckland.
Gold Coast Airport chief operating officer Paul Donovan, says the daily service will significantly boost the local tourism industry’s confidence in international tourism to the region.
“The commencement of this service will not only mean a healthy increase in inbound tourist numbers to the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers regions, but will also provide locals with an affordable international travel option,” says Donovan.
“We look forward to working co-operatively with Jetstar to ensure the continued success of this trans-Tasman service. New Zealand remains a key inbound market for the Gold Coast and we expect this service will help drive more visitors from New Zealand to this region for both leisure and business travel.
Gold Coast Airport’s $100 million redevelopment, which has been designed specifically for low-cost carriers, will even more visitors from across the ditch. 
“With stage one completed and stage two fast nearing completion, our passengers are now seeing something tangible,” says Donovan.
“The redevelopment is literally bringing the world to the Gold Coast.”
