Virgin Australia hasn’t done anything to scare investors fleet wise in these cautious times during a pitched capacity war with Qantas, but it is linking the two resource capitals of Perth and Brisbane with double daily A330s on working days from 15 May.
There will also be a third return service on the route Monday-Fridays with a 737.
It has also announced its entry with new services to the Brisbane-Bundaberg and Brisbane- Moranbah routes with ATR turbo-props in May and April respectively, adding to the resource industry brawl with Qantas on both sides of the continent.
