BRISBANE 14 JUNE 2011: The Virgin Australian Group of Airlines will operate normal scheduled services today after the significant disruption over the weekend due to ash from a Chilean volcano.
Virgin Australia Group Executive Sean Donohue said the Group’s Volcanic Ash Management Team will remain activated while there continues to be any potential for flight disruption.
“Our Volcanic Ash Management Team continues to work closely with the Bureau of Meteorology and the Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre in order to ensure determinations regarding our fleet operations are made on accurate and up to the minute data, as safety is always our highest priority,” Mr Donohue said.
The majority of Guests whose travel plans were disrupted during the past 48 hours have been provided alternative flights, with a small backlog of remaining Guests expected to be provided alternative flights today.
Additional flights will be implemented between Sydney and Melbourne and Melbourne and Hobart to carry impacted Guests.
