Virgin Australia has announced an extra daily service between Hobart and Melbourne, as well as a new lounge and Priority Boarding service for premium guests at Hobart Airport.
The additional flights will commence operations by September 2012 and the new 75-set lounge will open its doors in 2013.
Virgin announced last month the continued development of its lounge facilities nation-wide and its exploration of premium service markets.
With our international airline alliance partners and the introduction of premium services such as Business Class and airport lounges, we are now able to cater to new markets, including business and high-end leisure travellers from Australia and around the world, Virgin Australia CEO, John Borghetti said.
The Priority Boarding service will be made available on all flights departing Hobart from March 23, 2012.
The service encompasses a dedicated boarding lane at the gate, allowing premium guests the opportunity to board the plane when they wish.
Hobart Airports CEO, Rod Parry was delighted about Virgins additional flights and premium services.
The joint investment reflects the ongoing positive relationship between Hobart Airport and Virgin Australia. It will see continued growth into Tasmania as well as provide an excellent customer service experience for travellers, Mr Parry said.
