  • Virgin Australia lifts Hong Kong schedule to daily

    Virgin Australia will have a daily flight on its new Melbourne-Hong Kong service after securing additional landing and takeoff slots at the busy Chep Lap Kok Airport.

    The current five times a week schedule will move to daily from November 12, Virgin said in on Thursday.

    Virgin initially offered five flights a week when it launched the new service in July using Airbus A330-200s with a split schedule featuring either morning or midnight departures from Melbourne, depending on the day of the week. All flights from Hong Kong take off in the evening and land in Melbourne in the morning.

    In August, the airline announced it would introduce a consistent flight schedule from October, with all flights departing Melbourne in the late morning/midday and returning from Hong Kong overnight.
