Airline Insight: Virgin Australia

Each day this year The Blue Swan Daily uses the extensive insights available to CAPA – Centre for Aviation members to deliver a data snapshot on the world’s largest airlines and airports. Today, we feature Vrigin Australia International (IATA: VA; ICAO: VAU). Initially established as a low cost carrier by the Virgin Group, it has since transformed into a hybrid and now full service operator, targeting higher-yielding corporate traffic, while seeking to maintain its core leisure market share and low-cost base.
