Virgin Australia statement on Boeing 737 MAX 8s

Safety is Virgin Australia's number one priority. 

Virgin Australia will not introduce any new aircraft to the fleet unless we are completely satisfied with its safety. 

There are currently no Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft in our fleet.

We are closely monitoring the situation and will continue to work with Boeing, CASA, and other relevant authorities as more information becomes available.
