Virgin Australia is Australia’s second (after Qantas) airline.
Home Port is located in Brisbane.
The company’s route network has about 60 destinations and connects 29 cities in Australia with hubs in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney.
After several years of working as an inexpensive low-cost carrier, Virgin Australia improved its services and offers a mixed business model that allows a passenger to choose a “Budget ticket” or pay a little more to get a full range of services. Thus, the airline can cover a larger segment of the market and compete with the national carrier Qantas in the business travel market.
- According to the influential British consulting agency SKYTRAX, specializing in the study of the quality of services provided by various air carriers, the airline was awarded four stars. This is a very good indicator.
- Virgin Australia is ranked 19th in the Safest Airlines of the World 2019 by Jacdec.
