Aug 16, 2012

Melbourne Airport has welcomed Virgin Australia’s introduction of additional A330 services between Melbourne and Perth.

Melbourne Airport CEO, Chris Woodruff said, “Melbourne Airport is delighted Virgin Australia is expanding its A330s services on its Melbourne-Perth route.”

“As one of Virgin Australia’s busiest domestic airports, the additional A330 services will increase Virgin’s capacity on the Melbourne-Perth route by nearly 30 per cent, strengthening Melbourne’s status as a premier destination for Australian travellers. It’s a great vote of confidence in the Melbourne market,” said Mr Woodruff.

Virgin Australia will commence operating additional A330s on its Melbourne-Perth service from 21 September, increasing to five daily A330 services.

“In partnership with Virgin Australia, we are continuing work on the refurbishment of our Terminal 3. Works are progressing well and we’ll continue to work with Virgin Australia to minimise disruptions to passengers.  We look forward to unveiling the more contemporary and modern space for travelers at the end of the year,” said Mr Woodruff.
