Virgin Blue has launched daily flights between Perth and Darwin in Australia. Perth Airport CEO Brad Geatches said Virgin Blue’s decision to fly to the Northern Territory brings more competition to the route and more choice for Western Australian travellers.“The new service by Virgin Blue will bring the number of airlines servicing the Perth to Darwin route to four and with most airlines offering some great deals, now is a great time to fly domestically,” he said.
The new Virgin Blue service from Perth to Darwin will operate seven days a week from Perth Airport’s Domestic Terminal 3.
Departing Perth at 11:05 and arriving into Darwin at 16:25 (local time) the new service offers Western Australians more flexibility when travelling interstate.
The introduction of the new service comes at a time when Perth Airport embarks on improvements to the Domestic Terminals, which includes the streamlining of roads, widening the forecourt and undercover walkways. Works will commence in May, with the upgrade completion expected later in the year.
