Velocity cleared for take off
Virgin Australia changed its radio call sign to ‘velocity’ on October 29, replacing the four separate callsigns the airline previously operated under. On the same day the airline changed its ICAO code to VOZ.
The changes occurred to create what the airline describes as a “new group code and callsign [to] support the integration of Virgin Australia’s domestic and international airlines under the new brand and identity”. The callsign was chosen because it ties well with the Virgin Australia brand.
