From the UK to Australia all with Virgin branded airlines
- 08 January 2018
All the way from the UK to Australia with only Virgin branded airlines.
From the end of January your customers can fly from the UK to Australia all with Virgin thanks to a new codeshare agreement between Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Australia.
This new agreement with Virgin Australia is creating more fantastic travel options between the UK and Australia. Your customers will have the opportunity to experience all the destinations they want to travel to; more seamlessly, just on our airlines, in one booking and with the ease of a single check in and bag drop.
Your passengers can book and fly daily from London Heathrow to Melbourne, via Hong Kong or Los Angeles, then connect onto a Virgin Australia flight straight to Melbourne. Plus, connections from LA on to Sydney and Brisbane too.
There will be up to three daily flights between London Heathrow and Los Angeles and a daily flight to Hong Kong, creating the most flexible travel options to Australia than ever before. Both routes will be operated using the 787 Dreamliner offering customers a faster flight and an incredible onboard experience.
In addition to this, the codeshare agreement will also open up more domestic routes across Australia; allowing connections to or from eight cities including Cairns, Brisbane and Perth.
