DALLAS – Next year, Virgin Australia (VA) will double the number of its Boeing 737-8 aircraft in its fleet, bringing the total to eight to support its sustainability and growth programs.
Deliveries of the four planes will take place in the second half of 2023. VA doesn’t say if they are being leased or ordered directly.
The airline also placed an order for four MAX 8s in April for delivery starting in February 2023, although it made no mention of where those aircraft would come from.
The commitment to the type signals its return to VA’s 2023 fleet strategy.
