jetstar announce extra 25 new flights for Cairns

An extra 25 flights per week have been announced by Jetstar this week.  This equates to  an additional 9000 seats, or a 30% increase in capacity and could potentially boost tourist numbers to the Douglas region by 6000 per week.  Stephen Gregg at Cairns airport has been complimented on his hard work to get the extra flights.  Doug Ryan from Tourism Port Douglas Daintree said, 'its fantastic news for our region.  Our tourism industry is totally driven by aircraft seats.  The more seats available, the higher the level of visitation.'
