Virgin Australia Group chief strategy and transformation officer, Alistair Hartely said "Gold Coast is a big winner in today's announcement, with the city expected to receive an injection of up to 9,856 extra passengers each month, providing an early Christmas present to the hundreds of tourism operators, hospitality venues and local businesses who rely on the economic boost tourism provides to their community.

"For Tasmania, never before has Virgin Australia operated to this many mainland ports from the Apple Isle. Since September, we have announced 6 new routes to Tasmania, providing a significant boost to local tourism and over 28,000 additional seats each month."

The 4 new routes are on sale for travel select periods in December 2021 just in time for Christmas and between January and early April in 2022.
