Virgin starts direct flights between Perth & Hobart
September 21 (TravelAndy): Virgin Australia’s inaugural direct service from Perth in Western Australia to Hobart in Tasmania got under way earlier this week.
The first of Virgin’s direct flights between Perth and Hobart landed at Hobart Airport on Monday, September 17.
The service will operate three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and will mean travellers between the two cities no longer need connecting flights based out of Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.
The new service is expected to boost hospitality and visitor numbers to both Western Australia and Tasmania.
