Tauck Australian expansion

UPMARKET US operator Tauck World Discovery will operate a minimum of 70 charter flights in Australia next year, with local partner Alliance Aviation Services today confirming a three-year contract extension with the firm.

The move confirms significant growth in Tauck’s Australian business, which featured just four Alliance charters annually when the companies started working together in 2014.

The contracted flights support Tauck’s Australian itineraries which include Melbourne, Uluru, Cairns and Sydney.

The pact has been extended through until 2021, with Alliance saying “with such significant growth planned for the Australian market from 2019, both with the current tour schedule and potential new tours with Tauck, Alliance has elected not to extend the current New Zealand contract beyond 31 Dec 2018”.

Alliance CEO Lee Schofield confirmed that the organisations were also in discussions to provide charters to new Australian destinations.
