Virgin Australia Group statement on international borders

Comments from a Virgin Australia Group spokesman:

Virgin Australia has and will continue to work closely with both State and Federal governments to support the health and safety of the Australian community.

We agree with State and Federal leaders that eradication of COVID-19 cannot be the goal for our country. The question is not if, but when we will be sufficiently vaccinated to protect our people and our hospital system to open our international borders.

We must learn to live with COVID-19 in the community in a way that protects the health and safety of our people but also opens Australia up to the rest of the world.
