Episode 256: Tiger, Virgin, Romeos and a Teen World Flight update

It’s chilly & frosty down in Melbourne but that’s good for Grant as balloons fly extra well in the cold. But, enough of the weather, lets talk about the news:

  • Tiger Airways re-brands as Tigerair as they continue their integration with Virgin Australia.
  • The first Royal Australian Navy MH-60R “Romeo” takes to the skies in Connecticut.
  • Virgin Australia to introduce frequent flyer points for pets travelling with their owners on flights.
  • Regional Express (aka REX) named best regional airline in the Asia-Pacific region, and 2nd best regional operator in the world, as voted by Aviation Week.

We wrap with an update on Ryan Campbell’s Teen World Flight solo around the world flight. He’s made it to Hilo in Hawaii and is taking a break before continuing on to the mainland. You can listen to Steve’s chat with Ryan on the PCDU site.
