TD breaking news – Virgin Australia to revamp international operations

Tigerair Australia replacing Virgin services on some Australia-Bali routes. 

Virgin Australia has just announced plans to “optimise its international network,” with the changes seeing the Tigerair Australia brand launching into the short-haul international market for the first time.

Bali will be Tigerair Australia’s first international destination, with the carrier using three all-economy configured Boeing 737-800 aircraft to fly from Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth to Denpasar effective from 23 March 2016. From the same date Virgin Australia will withdraw from the same routes.

Virgin said members of its Velocity frequent flyer program would be able to redeem points for seats on the Tigerair services to Bali.

Other changes announced will see Virgin Australia increase capacity into New Zealand, in conjunction with alliance partner Air New Zealand. VA said it would also increase capacity to Fiji and the Solomon Islands to meet customer demand.

The Tasman boost includes two extra weekly return Sydney-Christchurch flights, an extra weekly Melbourne-Christchurch service and additional seasonal capacity on Brisbane-Auckland, Brisbane-Dunedin, Brisbane-Wellington, Brisbane-Christchurch, Brisbane-Apia, Brisbane-Honiara and Sydney-Nadi.

Virgin Australia has also released its full year financial results, confirming a statutory loss after tax of $93.8 million as foreshadowed last week.
