In an effort to further enhance the domestic passengers travel experience, Virgin Australia together with Melbourne airport has commenced significant refurbishments to Terminal 3 (T3).
Virgin Australia chief operating officer Sean Donohue said the refurbishment is part of a series of initiatives which highlight the importance of the Victorian capital to the airlines operations.
Some of the initiatives include the opening of a high quality new corporate lounge, new trans-continental A330 service and increased flight frequencies to Brisbane, Sydney and Hobart.
“Melbourne is one of our busiest domestic airports and we serve over a million guests every year more than 19,000 every single day,” Mr Donohue said.
Mr Donohue said that in addition to these upgrades they are also on track to introduce a Premium Valet service at Melbourne Airport later in the year.
Melbourne Airport chief executive officer Chris Woodruff said the T3 refurbishment is part of the Airport’s investment of A$1 billion on infrastructure upgrades over the next five years.
“We are pleased to be working closely with Virgin Australia on this project to deliver a better experience for our passengers,” Mr Woodruff said.“All flights will continue to operate normally from T3 during the refurbishment, and we’ll be working closely with Virgin Australia and our other airline customers to minimise inconvenience for passengers while the work is being carried out.
