Virgin has announced it will be adding business class seating to internal flights to Melbourne.
People travelling on flights to Melbourne with Virgin from within Australia will now have the option of flying business class.
The carrier has announced it is planning to offer business class travel on its flights that originate in Perth for the first time.
It will be using two of its international-grade Airbus A330 aircraft on the journeys, with a third craft to be included from April and a fourth being added soon after, with the business class option becoming available on the coast to coast flights from May 14th.
By using the larger aircraft, the carrier will be adding an extra 20,000 seats a year between the two cities.
Benefits of travelling in the business class sections include having a larger seat pitch and amenity kits, as well as access to the lounge.
Some people who take flights to Melbourne this spring may be planning to pay a visit to the city’s harbour, as several of the world’s most famous cruise ships are set to stop off at the port in the coming months.
