Virgin Australia to Abu Dhabi

Virgin Australia (VA) will launch services from Melbourne to Los Angeles and Perth to Abu Dhabi in 2017. The airline has a mixed ownership including Etihad Airways (21%) Nanshan Group – China (19.9%), Singapore Airlines (19.8%), HNA Group  China (13%), Virgin Group (8%) and Air New Zealand (2.5%).

On 4 April 2017 the airline will introduce five services each week between Melbourne and Los Angeles using Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, followed on 9 June by a further three services weekly from Perth to Abu Dhabi using Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

Virgin Australia Group CEO John Borghetti said: “The United States is a key market for Virgin Australia and this enables us to service Los Angeles from the three biggest gateways in Australia – Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

“In partnership with Delta Air Lines, we will soon offer 25 services each week from Australia to Los Angeles and remain the only trans-Pacific alliance to offer Business Class guests lie-flat beds with direct aisle access on all services”.

Virgin Australia will cease its three times weekly Sydney – Abu Dhabi flights after 4 February 2017, replaced by alliance partner Etihad Airways and will reduce Brisbane – Los Angeles flights from seven to six per week from 7 April 2017.
