Virgin Blue (now known as Virgin Australia
) flys to all capital cities and holiday spots, over 30 destinations in Australia alone.
Virgin Australia first began flying on 31/August/2000. Originally offering domestic flights between Sydney and Brisbane, Virgin Airlines now flys to all major cities and tourist destinations.
Virgin Airways operates Boeing 737s, carrying between 144-180 passengers. Like Virgin Atlantic, they name their aircraft - the first was 'Brizzie Lizzie' as Virgin Blue are based in Brisbane. You could be flying in 'Betty Blue','Smurfette' and 'Smoochy Maroochy' to name just a few.
In 2010 Virgin Blue won SkyTrax's Best Low-Cost Airline (for Australia/Pacific), presented at the World Airline Awards.
