Additional return services between Adelaide and Melbourne have been added this weekend, to cater for the overwhelming extra demand from Adelaide based fans eager to see the Crows take on the Western Bulldogs at the MCG in the elimination final match this Saturday night.

Tigerair Australia’s Commercial Director Adam Rowe says that the airline is thrilled to enable sports fans to catch their team in action, particularly around AFL finals time when demand for travel is so great.

This weekend, the airline has put on an additional return service to allow AFL fans the opportunity to get to Melbourne and back again for the big match.
