Virgin Australia's New Economy Space+ Now Flying

30 August 2016


Virgin Australia’s new product Economy Space+ takes to the skies today, providing a more seamless and comfortable experience for guests travelling in the main cabin on all Domestic and International services.

Domestically, Economy Space+ includes Priority Boarding1, at least 25 per cent more legroom and preferred overhead lockers, while Short Haul International flights also include access to dedicated check-in facilities.

On Boeing 777-300ER flights from Australia to Los Angeles and Abu Dhabi, guests will receive:

  • Dedicated check-in;
  • Priority Boarding2;
  • 25 per cent more legroom than the main Economy cabin;
  • Preferred Overhead Lockers;
  • Premium Noise Cancelling Headset; and
  • Guaranteed first meal choice.

Economy Space+ replaces ‘Extra Legroom’ across the entire Virgin Australia network.

Virgin Australia Chief Commercial Officer Judith Crompton said: “We are committed to providing our guests with more choice and comfort when flying with Virgin Australia.

“We believe Economy Space+ provides great value and will be very popular with travellers in the main cabin,” Ms Crompton said.

Economy Space+ is located in the Exit Rows of our Airbus A330-200, Boeing 737-800, Embraer E190, and Fokker 100 fleets and Row 1 on our ATR-72 aircraft. On the Boeing 777-300ER it is located in the first section of the main cabin (five rows behind Premium Economy) as well as the Exit Rows.

Economy Space+ prices begin at $10 one way for domestic and short haul international flights, and $50 one way for long haul international flights3. It can be purchased when selecting your seat through virginaustralia.com or through a travel agent.
