Virgin suspends all domestic services

Virgin Australia will suspend all domestic services from 10 April, except one return flight between Sydney and Melbourne.

Previously, the airline had reduced domestic capacity by 90 per cent, flying to just 19 destinations, and cancelled all international journeys.

The business said in a statement, “As a result of government restrictions, less people are travelling and we have made changes to our schedules to reflect this. We continue to operate a daily service between Melbourne and Sydney, provide cargo transport locally and overseas, and operate charter flights including assisting the government in bringing Australians home.”

The Sydney to Melbourne return service will operate daily except Saturdays, and there is no news as to whether this latest announcement will result in more job losses.
