Virgin Australia launched its inaugural flight to Hong Kong earlier this month, marking the start of the airline’s expansion into Greater China. Flying between Melbourne and Hong Kong five times a week, the airline utilises the Airbus A330-200 fleet that features the award-winning Business Class suites ‘The Business’, which were recently recognised as the world’s best Business Class by Airline Ratings.
Sir Richard Branson said: “I am so delighted to see Virgin Australia fly to Hong Kong for the first time. Both Melbourne and Hong Kong are such vibrant, fantastic cities and to be able to connect them with the world’s best Business Class and the best cabin crew is truly exciting.”
According to John Borghetti, Virgin Australia Group CEO and Managing Director, Hong Kong’s diverse cultural fabric has long been a draw card for many Australians, as has its appeal as a stepping stone into Greater China. Through Virgin Australia’s direct services to Hong Kong and our partnership with Hong Kong Airlines, Australians can enjoy convenient travel to Greater China. Also, the airline was awarded Best Airline and Best Airline Staff in the region and was the highest ranked Australian airline in the Skytrax World Top 100 list. Passengers in Greater China will be able to experience the world-class product and service when flying to Melbourne.
