Virgin Australia signs Amadeus partnership

Amadeus and Virgin Australia have signed a new multi-year agreement, extending their longstanding partnership. 

The new agreement provides Amadeus travel agents with worldwide continued access to Virgin Australia’s full range of fares, seats and schedules under the same conditions as that offered through all other channels.

It also means that Virgin Australia will continue to be able to reach global travellers through one of the largest travel agency networks in the world.

Virgin Australia is an Australian national carrier that operates domestic and international regular passenger services, charter and cargo services and the loyalty program Velocity Frequent Flyer.

“We have boundless respect for Virgin Australia as an innovative, forward-thinking airline and are pleased to see our partnership with them go from strength to strength.
