Virgin Blue Business Class

In a first for Virgin Blue, the airline will now offer Business Class on its domestic network.  Two brand new Airbus A330 aircraft commence operations in May this year, providing a three times daily service from Sydney to Perth.

Virgin Blue Group Chief Executive and Managing Director John Borghetti said: “Our new Business and Economy Class product marks another step forward in our Game Change Programme, which aims to position Virgin Blue as the airline of choice for both the corporate and the leisure markets.”

Features of the new service include a 62-inch seat pitch in Business Class and luxury leather seating, seatback multi-channel in-flight entertainment and a range of high quality food options.

Virgin Blue is Australia's second-largest airline as well as the largest by fleet size to utilise the Virgin brand.  The airline serves 28 cities in Australia, with Brisbane Airport as its hub, using 75 narrow-body Boeings and Embraers with four A330-200s on order, all to be delivered this year. www.virginblue.com.au
