The news follows a number of other network announcements made by Virgin Australia in the past month, including the commencement of two new Launceston services as the airline pivots to reconnect Australia in new ways. 

Virgin Australia Group Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer, Alistair Hartley said today’s announcement will reconnect more Australians in time for Christmas.   

“Virgin Australia continues to look for new ways to expand our network schedule to create more travel opportunities for Australians where free movement across borders is permitted.

“That’s why we’re proud to announce the launch of services between Hobart, and Adelaide and Perth in time for Christmas,” said Mr Hartley. 

“Over the past month, Virgin Australia has already announced two new Tasmanian services, so together that’s up to 18,000 more travellers who are able to explore the Apple Isle’s incredible tourist attractions and natural wonders.”

For added confidence when booking, the airline also says it is waiving applicable change fees and allowing unlimited changes for bookings for travel between now and 28 February 2022, so travellers can book with confidence knowing they can change their booking if they need to.
