It's a Brisbane International Flight Bonanza03/10/2008
NON-STOP TO THE SOLOMON ISLANDS & MORE FLIGHTS TO WELLINGTON
Virgin Blue’s sister airline, Pacific Blue, today revealed the newest destination on its growing route network with the addition of direct flights between Brisbane and the Solomon Islands (Honiara) taking off on 2 December 2008*, as well as adding three extra seasonal flights each week between Wellington and Brisbane.
As part of an ongoing expansion plan Pacific Blue will fly direct between Brisbane and the Solomon Islands twice a week with convenient connections available from Perth, Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra and Melbourne.
To celebrate the new destination the airline is offering a special Brisbane – Honiara launch fare of $249* on sale now until midnight 10 October or until sold out for travel from 2 December until 31 March 2009. Regular lead-in fares will start from $379* one way on the internet.
Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said, “This is the third brand new international destination we’ve announced in as many weeks and it’s exciting, particularly in this current climate, to be able to continue our expansion into new territories.”
In addition to a brand new destination the airline will also boost services between Brisbane and Wellington from 1 December 2008, in time for the busy Christmas travel period, increasing the seasonal frequency on this route from five to eight flights a week.
“As with all our routes we keep a close eye on loadings and market demand and we believe the additional capacity on the Brisbane – Wellington route will be warmly welcomed by the travelling public in both directions who are looking for a convenient schedule, great value and outstanding service,” Brett Godfrey finished.
