Virgin Australia invests in the future

Virgin Australia Group this week announced announced the imminent arrival of four additional Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

The Boeing aircraft are in addition to another four MAX 8 aircraft announced in April 2022, and will reduce emissions by 15% per flight, the airline said in a press release.

First delivery of the additional Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft is expected in 2023.

Virgin Australia Group CEO Jayne Hrdlicka said the announcement demonstrates the airline’s commitment to the Australian aviation market and to sustainably grow its fleet for long-term success.

“The future of Virgin Australia is bright and we have highlighted our commitment to maintain strong competition for Australians who want to travel and experience great value," she said.

"It also underscores our confidence in our underlying performance and commitment to Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050.

“Despite the challenges faced by our industry, demand for travel remains strong and we’re responding with a focus on the long-term by increasing the efficiency and sustainability of our fleet with four additional Boeing MAX 8s joining our fleet from 2023."
