Virgin Australia adds jets, reveals new cabins - 5th May 2011

A brand new Boeing 737-800 and Airbus A330-200 have been added to Virgin Australia’s domestic fleet, revealing the airline’s new economy and business class cabins.

Demonstrating the new in-flight experience aboard Virgin Australia, the new cabins feature leather seating, contemporary interior design, new in-flight products and a Luke Mangan-designed gourmet menu.

“We have listened to what today’s traveller wants from an airline and we are incorporating that into every feature and every part of our service, while maintaining competitive pricing,” Virgin Australia chief executive John Borghetti said.

“Business class guests can look forward to complimentary access to our Lounges, priority check-in, a seamless travel experience and luxurious cabin space and seating.

“Our economy class incorporates a new modern design with the new Luke Mangan-inspired
retail menu and the superb customer service for which Virgin Blue is renowned.”

Speaking at yesterday’s launch of the Virgin Australia brand, Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson said the carrier’s new business and economy classes were “without doubt the absolute best in Australia”.

“The planes look fantastic on the outside ... and they look absolutely fantastic on the inside too,” Sir Richard said.

At the launch, Mr Borghetti also announced the airline would be rolling out “a completely new” frequent flyer programme, to be introduced in a few months.
