Music festival a flight into fancy

POPULAR airline Tigerair Australia has been named the official airline partner for the Airlie Beach Festival of Music for 2015.

In tune with Tigerair's goals to empower travellers to explore new destinations and accumulate memorable experiences, the sponsorship of the Whitsunday festival is a perfect fit.

Commercial director Adam Rowe said Tigerair was thrilled to support the festival as the airline's services to the region grew.

"Tigerair provides consistently great value airfares between Sydney and Whitsunday Coast and we very recently added a new Sunday service to the schedule, just in time for the music festival, in response to overwhelming demand for more services," he said.

"We're delighted to enable more Sydneysiders than ever to enjoy the Airlie Beach Festival of Music and have an affordable short break in tropical paradise."

The Airlie Beach Festival of Music is the only waterfront music festival at the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Dates for this year's festival are from Thursday, November 5, to Sunday, November 8.

The festival features internationally and nationally recognised musicians performing in three main concerts and in many of the town's quaint bars and beachside venues.

Festival passes can be purchased at http://www.bigtix.com.au and http://www.mackayecc.com.au.
