Virgin Australia announces Adelaide - Alice Springs - Darwin services are now on sale

Virgin Australia today announced services between Adelaide, Alice Springs and Darwin are now on sale ahead of flights commencing on 30 March 2015.

Last month the airline announced the introduction of flights between these three key central Australian destinations bringing strong competition back to these routes.

Virgin Australia Chief Commercial Officer Judith Crompton said: “By bringing competition and choice we will be playing a key role in supporting local businesses and tourism operators as they promote all that Darwin, Adelaide and Alice Springs have to offer.

The introduction of these direct flights will also enable local residents to connect more seamlessly onto our expansive domestic and international network,” Ms Crompton said.

The new flights will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and will utilise Virgin Australia’s 176-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which includes complimentary wireless in-flight entertainment for all passengers.

Velocity Frequent Flyer members will be able to earn Status Credits and Velocity Points on these routes. Business Class customers and eligible Velocity members will be able to enjoy access to Virgin Australia’s Adelaide Lounge and the soon-to-be-launched Darwin Lounge and Alice Springs Regional Lounge.

Virgin Australia flies from Darwin to five domestic destinations as well as to Singapore with the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, Silk Air. Virgin Australia also connects from Adelaide to seven domestic and three international destinations.
