17 February, 2019

Virgin Australia GM network and revenue management Russell Shaw said the carrier is "pleased with demand thus far" with Sydney-Hong Kong service launched in 2018 (Routes Online, 15-Feb-2019). "As with any new long haul route launch we are still in ramp up mode, building greater awareness of the service across our customer base and attracting new customers across our expanded network", he said, adding Virgin has been "surprised" at the number of passengers connecting at Hong Kong onto Virgin Atlantic to/from London.
