Virgin Australia announced on Tuesday the resumption of service between Brisbane and Hamilton Island from August 4, 2020. The route will be operated three-times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Today (August 4, 2020) Virgin Australia announced the resumption of service between Brisbane and Hamilton Island as Queenslanders continue to support the state’s key leisure destinations. The carrier will offer three weekly returns and the flights will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Virgin Australia will add approximately 4,500 seats weekly between Queensland’s capital and Hamilton Island monthly. In Tuesday’s announcement, Virgin Australia’s Chief Commercial officer, John MacLeod said,
“Virgin Australia is delighted to provide more competition for travellers visiting the Whitsundays. Queenslanders are supporting our flights to key Queensland leisure destinations and we’re really pleased to further ramp-up our schedule to include regular services to Hamilton Island. We know that giving travellers great fares to the Whitsundays, coupled with award-winning service, is what will help to recover the Queensland tourism industry while providing more jobs for our people and those who work in the region.”
Also commenting on today’s announcement, Hamilton Island’s CEO, Glenn Bourke added,
“The resumption of Virgin Australia’s direct services will provide domestic travellers the opportunity to enjoy all that Hamilton Island has to offer. We are grateful for the support the island has received from the intrastate market and look forward to being able to welcome all of our Australian guests back to enjoy their holidays as soon as restrictions ease.”
Economy Class fares between Brisbane and Hamilton Island start at just $155 one-way, including baggage and seat selection. Virgin Australia wants their guests to book with confidence and is therefore waiving change fees and allowing unlimited booking changes for travel between now and October 31, 2020.
