Virgin Blue – Australia flight specialist
Virgin Australia Airlines - formely Virgin Blue - is an airline based in Sydney, Australia. Virgin Blue began operating low-cost flights in 2000. Virgin Blue airlines initially specialised in cheap domestic flights in Australia. 2004 saw the launch of Pacific Blue, offering flights to New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Pacific Blue built a solid reputation for reliably well-priced flights to Fiji, Tonga, Vanuatu and the Cook Islands. Flight deals with Virgin Blue have often been among the cheapest flights to Australia from New Zealand. Further expansion saw the launch of Polynesian Blue. 2007 saw Pacific Blue offering domestic flights in New Zealand. 2009 saw the launch of V Australia, offering flights to Los Angeles from Sydney and Brisbane. V Australia introduced flights to Abu Dhabi in 2011. The same year saw the rebranding of the airline under the name of Virgin Australia.
