Troubling tourism figures coming out of Tasmania where in the three months from July to September the number of seats into Hobart dropped by 10 per cent, or 55,000 seats, due to reduced schedules and the absence of Tiger Airways.

Meanwhile, the number of visitors to Tasmania’s national parks has dropped 8% from 777,000 to 714,000 in the past two years. In some good news, Jetstar’s just announced an extra daily flight from Melbourne to Hobart starting Dec 22.
