Virgin Australia has announced several new services that will be available next year, including a flight from Perth to Abu Dhabi.

From next June, Virgin will offer three weekly services between Perth and Abu Dhabi, while flights between Melbourne and Los Angeles will run five times a week from April.

“Our A330 aircraft will be deployed on a long-haul international route for the first time on flights between Perth and Abu Dhabi, which increases the number of services offered on the route from seven to 10 per week through our alliance with Etihad Airways,” Virgin Australia chief executive John Borghetti said.

“In partnership with Delta Air Lines, we will soon offer 25 services each week from Australia to Los Angeles and remain the only trans-Pacific alliance to offer business class guests lie-flat beds with direct aisle access on all services.

“The US is a key market for Virgin Australia and this enables us to service Los Angeles from the three biggest gateways in Australia – Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.”

In order to cater for the services between Melbourne and LA, Virgin will cease its three-times-weekly Sydney to Abu Dhabi flights in February, and will also reduce its Brisbane to LA flights from seven per week to six per week, from April onwards.
