Alliance Airlines: Codeshare with Virgin Australia ‘best of both worlds’

    Alliance Airlines CEO Lee Schofield said the airline’s agreements with Virgin Australia meant there were new opportunities to service regional Queensland (Brisbane Times, 17-Jul-2017). Commenting amid the launch of service from Brisbane to Gladstone, Bundaberg and Port Macquarie, Mr Schofield said: “It’s the best of both worlds. All Alliance passengers will be able to enjoy Virgin Australia’s Velocity points and lounge access, with the added bonus of our jet services to the three ports, which means a faster and smoother ride”. Mr Schofield also said the carrier would seek to expand to more regional Queensland destinations in the future.
