Virgin Australia on March 19, 2018 announced it will commence services between Brisbane and Alice Springs, increasing its regional domestic network offering.
From June 19, 2018, Virgin Australia will operate a twice-weekly return service on Tuesdays and Thursdays under a wet lease agreement with Alliance Airlines, operated by Alliance’s Fokker 100 and Fokker 70 fleet of aircraft.
Services between Brisbane and Rockhampton, currently operated by Alliance’s Fokker 100 fleet, will also benefit with Virgin Australia upgrading two existing return flights to its Boeing 737 aircraft, adding over 300 seats per week in to the region.
