Own Virgin Australia shares in just a few minutes.

Update April 21: Virgin Australia entered a trading halt on April 14. On Tuesday April 21, Virgin Australia officially entered voluntary administration as it looks to recapitalise and seek financial assistance. This does not necessarily mean the company is going to collapse however shareholders are likely to see the value of VAH shares fall to zero.

Virgin Australia Holdings (VAH) is a domestic and international airline that was founded by Virgin Group's CEO Richard Branson. It operates both domestic and international routes within Australia, the Trans-Pacific, Abu Dhabi, the Trans-Tasman, the Pacific Islands and South East Asia. Virgin Australia also owns Virgin's Velocity deals loyalty program and TigerAir Australia.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Virgin Australia and numerous of other global airlines have come under financial pressure as countries close borders amid strict social isolation rules. On March 25, 2020 the company announced it was cutting down 90% of domestic routes (including all TigerAir Australia flights) and temporarily standing down 8,000 of its 10,000 staff in a move to cut costs. On April 21 the company entered voluntary administration.
