Mantra Group ready for increased tourism from Cairns flight boost
Mantra Group, Tropical North Queensland’s largest accommodation provider, is preparing for a stellar peak tourism season with the announcement of increased flights into Cairns, the gateway to the Far North.
Last week, Jetstar announced they have increased their Japan to Cairns flights from four flights a week, adding an extra 4500 seats a week into the Tropical North Queensland to cater for the growing demand for inbound tourism from Japan.
The low-cost airline also announced the reintroduction of their Auckland to Cairns service in early April.
“With more than 1,000 rooms available in Mantra Group’s Peppers, Mantra and BreakFree properties in Cairns, Palm Cove and Port Douglas, we are well placed to service the expected increase in visitors,” said Mantra Group CEO, Bob East.
“The tourism sector will obviously benefit hugely from this and our network of 11 Peppers, Mantra and BreakFree properties in Tropical North Queensland suit a range of travellers offering accommodation ranging from self-contained apartments to luxury resorts.”
Several domestic routes have also been ramped up recently including Jetstar’s Melbourne-Cairns route, Tiger Airways’ Melbourne-Cairns and Virgin’s Brisbane-Cairns.
