Virgin Australia launches new business class product

2 Mar 2015 by Clement Huang

Virgin Australia (Virgin) has launched its new business class product on its Auckland–Sydney route.

The deployment of the product signifies an enhancement to the carrier’s premium serving offering on trans-Tasman and Pacific Island routes. It is also part of a progressive rollout in the New Zealand and Pacific Island markets.

Initially, Virgin is looking to progressively refit ten of its B737 aircraft. The new configuration will feature a 2-2 business class layout with leather seating and menus designed by resident head chef Luke Mangan.

A complete list of Virgin’s new business class offering is attached below:

  • Leather seating with 38” seat pitch on the B737
  • Comfort packs with blankets, pillows, and international-style amenity kits including Australian organic cosmetics by GROWN for flights over three hours
  • Newspapers until noon daily
  • Luke Mangan gourmet full service dining experience
  • Premium Australian wines, beers, and spirit selection
  • Gourmet tea selection from Madame Flavour
  • Priority baggage service where available

“The Trans-Tasman and Pacific Island routes remain a very strong focus for us and importantly, customers travelling in these markets now have more choice when it comes to business and premium leisure travel,” said Virgin’s chief commercial officer Judith Crompton. “The enhancement also allows us to offer a consistent customer proposition in conjunction with our alliance partner Air New Zealand”.
