VIRGIN BLUE, Australia’s second largest airline, has confirmed an order for 50 Boeing 737-800s, 25 options and future purchase rights for a further 30 aircraft. Delivery is scheduled from 2011 to 2017. It is probably the largest aircraft order in the last couple of years and a real fillip for Boeing. The order also marks the arrival of John Borghetti as Chief Executive, a Qantas veteran. Virgin Blue has half-year net profits of A$62.5m, Qantas only making A$58m. The airline operates a two-class system. V Australia is a sister company with long haul routes to the USA and South Africa. www.virginblue.com.au www.vaustralia.com.au
