Virgin Australia launches inaugural Adelaide-Launceston services

Virgin Australia operated the first direct flights between Adelaide and Launceston in more than 20 years with the airline’s inaugural services take-off on September 7.

First announced last month with a series of Virgin Australia network changes to navigate border restrictions, the Adelaide-Launceston flights will operate three-times per week, connecting up to 4,200 travelers each month with some of the country’s best food and wine, culture and natural wonders. The direct services will also generate a much-needed boost to the local tourism industry, while allowing more Virgin Australia employees to return to the skies.

In addition, the airline also reintroduced services between Adelaide and Darwin on September 6.
