Virgin Australia will add nine more Boeing 737-800 aircraft to its mainline fleet beginning in October this year, in anticipation of an increase in domestic travel as vaccination rates climb and interstate borders open.

The aircraft are scheduled to fly throughout the high summer season to meet predicted vacation travel, with the goal of having all nine in the air by mid-February 2022.

Despite the substantial hurdles now posed by COVID-19 and accompanying border closures, Virgin Australia CEO Jayne Hrdlicka stated that the additional aircraft demonstrated Virgin Australia’s long-term commitment to its customers, team members, and Australia’s aviation business.

Virgin Australia has already begun planning for the arrival of its first Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircraft in mid-2023, which will provide higher operational efficiency as well as improved product and design characteristics for consumers and the environment.
