Virgin Australia to Halt Perth–Phuket Route and Transfer Bali Flights to Tigerair

Virgin Australia on Friday announced plans to end the airline’s Perth–Phuket route and to transfer three of its Bali routes to low-cost carrier Tigerair Australia, which is also owned by Virgin Australia Holdings.

Flights for its Perth–Phuket route will end as of February 1, 2016, and the airline will instead expand services for its New Zealand and Pacific region routes. On October 25, Virgin will be adding two flights from Sydney to Christchurch, while one flight will be added from Melbourne to Christchurch on November 6.

Tigerair will also be taking over Virgin’s Adelaide–Bali, Melbourne–Bali, and Perth–Bali routes as of March 23, 2016, allocating three all-economy Boeing 737-800 aircraft for the operations. The Melbourne route will be operating daily flights, while the Adelaide will be flying five times a week. The Perth route, however, will be reduced from eight to seven flights per week.
