Virgin Australia is expanding business travellers' options from its hub at Brisbane, with new flights to Moranbah and Bundaberg in regional Queensland.
Brisbane-Moranbah services will start off twice daily on weekdays as of 2 April, with an extra weekday flight from 15 April. On weekends, there'll be a single Sunday return.
Brisbane-Bundaberg, meanwhile, will see a single daily afternoon return flight on the hour-long journey, with a 1240 departure from Brisbane and a 1410 takeoff from Bundaberg.
Both regional Queensland flights will use all-economy ATR turboprop aircraft, currently operated by regional airline Skywest, which Virgin is in the final stages of buying outright.
Virgin will also upgrade some of its Brisbane-Perth flights to an Airbus A330 service – see our report for full details.
