Virgin Australia has announced plans to launch flights between Sydney and Hong Kong, subject to authorisation.
The airline, which already operates Melbourne to Hong Kong flights, plans to operate daily return services between the two cities with its dual aisle Airbus A330-200 aircraft, featuring ‘The Business’, which has been named the world’s best Business Class for two consecutive years.
Virgin Australia Group CEO, John Borghetti, said: “Expanding our presence into Greater China is a key pillar of our international strategy, and today we are building on the positive momentum created since the launch of our Melbourne-Hong Kong flights.”
“The new Sydney-Hong Kong service will link two global destinations and will allow Virgin Australia to further access the fastest growing and most valuable Australian inbound market, China with our alliance partner Hong Kong Airlines. The service will also connect with Virgin Atlantic Airways’ flights to London.”
The flights should begin in mid-2018 and will go on sale soon.
