VS seeks VA codeshare on HKG

VIRGIN Australia has formally applied to the International Air Services Commission to allow Virgin Atlantic to codeshare on its Melbourne-Hong Kong flights.

VA has also applied for VS codeshare rights on services from Australia to the USA, with the IASC now seeking submissions about the application with a due date of 15 Jan 2018.

If the applications are successful the move would see the return of VS to the Hong Kong-Australia route – albeit on VA metal – almost four years after it ditched non-stop flights between Sydney and Hong Kong (TD 05 May 2014).

Codesharing on Virgin Australia’s US and Hong Kong services would also create the opportunity for Virgin Atlantic to offer a Virgin-branded round the world ticket.
