Two lucky couples win seats on new Melbourne service

THE two-week countdown until Tigerair launches its much-anticipated Coffs Harbour to Melbourne service is officially on.

To celebrate the lift-off, a competition by Tigerair, Accor Hotels and The Coffs Coast Advocate has given two lucky readers and their partners a weekend getaway to Melbourne, including return airfares and luxury accommodation.

Winner, Natasha Kirkham, said the trip would be a "second honeymoon" following her wedding in September.

"My husband has never been on a commercial plane before - he's done a skydive, but he's never landed in a plane so it will be very exciting," she laughed.

The second winner, David Mitchell, said he's looking forward to visiting the Victorian capital for the first time with his wife Penny.

The December 9 launch will see Tigerair become the only airline flying direct between the cities three days a week and will offer 60,000 seats each year.
