Product in Focus
Coming soon will be airside access from the Hobart Qantas Club to the departure gates - Qantas Club members will be able to check in, pass through security screening and then enter the Qantas Club via a corridor. When boarding commences, Qantas Club members and guests will proceed directly to the departure gate without any need to pass any further security screening. This is expected to be in place by May 2012. Also, Qantas has been expanding its fleet of next-generation Boing 737-800s and already these aircraft have been visiting Hobart regularly.
Tamar Coach Operator Goes National
Legana-based McDermott's Coaches have signed an agreement with national coach tour operator, Scenic Tours Pty Ltd to deliver all Scenic and Evergreen programs in Tasmania and on the main land. The new Scenic/Evergreen touring program for the 2012/2013 season will include 25 Tasmanian departures. Sales & Marketing Manager, Kim Jeffrey says the company recently added two new luxury Mercedes touring coaches to their existing fleet of over 40 vehicles, and more luxury vehicles are on order. Company director Peter McDermott says the outstanding professionalism and customer service provided by his 55 staff is the main reason for the company's success nationally.
