A new domestic route from Sydney to Perth has been launched by Virgin Australia.

The first Airbus A330 flights to Perth from Sydney with Virgin Australia have been launched, with new business class cabins and economy class features included.

Passengers in economy class can enjoy luxury leather seats and in-flight video entertainment on their own personal screen.

Meanwhile, business class options include daily newspapers, airport lounge facilities, meal service, additional carry-on luggage storage, and blankets and pillows on all flights that last three hours or more.

The new service will be running at a peak frequency of three times per day by July, carrying 33,000 passengers a week, the airline added.

Prices on this new service start at 219 Australian dollars (£143) each way in economy class and 1,399 Australian dollars each way in business class.

Virgin Australia is the local division of Virgin Atlantic and the airline offers a choice of 32 domestic destinations across the country.
