Virgin Australia to repace Fokkers with Boeings

Virgin Australia

In the biggest upgrade of its fleet in Western Australia, Virgin Australia Regional Airlines will retire its 10, 100-seat Fokker 100s and replace them with 149-seat Boeing 737-700s.

The move is part of the airline’s push for net-zero emissions by 2050 with the 737-700s using 30 per cent less fuel per passenger than the Fokker 100.

Separately the Virgin Australia Group has committed to four Boeing 737 MAX aircraft that will join the fleet in February next year and these aircraft use 15 per cent less fuel than the airline’s 737-800s.
