Virgin Australia CEO: VA ‘still in the early stages on transitioning’ to lower cost base

    Virgin Australia CEO and MD Paul Scurrah stated (26-Feb-2020) despite revenue growth and changes to the carrier’s fleet network in H1FY2020, the carrier is “still in the early stages on transitioning our business to a lower cost base. Therefore, the benefits of cost changes and further revenue efficiency have yet to be realised”. Mr Scurrah said the carrier is “progressing well” on reviewing suppliers and agreements, rightsizing Virgin Australia’s workforce and fleet network changes.
