Show You The Way To Go from Sydney to Hong Kong. Dannii Minogue (centre in case you were wondering) may well have sung her 1993 hit from her Get Into You album at the Virgin Australia Airlines launch of services between the two cities on 2 July. The carrier plans to operate a daily service between the two cities using its A330-200s.
- Virgin Australia Airlines commenced its second service to Hong Kong (HKG) this week, adding a daily service from Sydney (SYD) on 2 July. Flight VA083 adds to the carrier’s existing five times weekly operation to the Asian gateway from Melbourne, a route which the carrier inaugurated back on 5 July last year. The 7,388-kilometre sector will be flown daily by the airline’s A330-200 fleet, and faces head-to-head competition from Cathay Pacific Airways (four times daily) and Qantas (twice-daily) based on OAG schedules.
