Virgin Australia has announced it’s opening up domestic travel options for Australians, with the airline resuming flights on 17 more routes, taking travellers to just under 30 local destinations by early August.

“We’re really encouraged by the resumption of local services by our domestic airlines—it’s a great sign. Not just for travellers, but for airline and tourism employees and our industry as a whole,”

said The Travel Authority Group’s CEO, Peter Hosper.

The routes include the resumption of flights to Newcastle, Hobart, Launceston, Darwin, Alice Springs, Hamilton Island, Maroochydore, Ballina, Coffs Harbour, Proserpine, and Mount Isa.

“We’re pleased to have continued our collaborative effort with the Federal Government to re-introduce some services as we start to see confidence return, and as each State and Territory comes closer to finalising their plans for the easing of restrictions and the reopening of borders,” said Virgin Australia Group Chief Commercial Officer, John MacLeod.

“Many of our aircraft have been parked and our teams are preparing them to return to the skies, and with the increase in flights we’re announcing today, we’re looking forward to serving our guests as they travel to visit family and friends, or take a well-deserved break,” he added.

The airline has also introduced additional safety and wellbeing measures to minimise risks associated with COVID-19, and to help you feel comfortable and confident when flying.
