Virgin Australia has announced plans to add capacity to its domestic services over the next few weeks.

The airline says it will add 64 domestic services offering 9000 additional seats between Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide from October 31 and November 13 to meet increased demand for flights, following Qantas cutting back on flights due to industrial action.

Virgin said it will continue to review demand and provide more updates on capacity as necessary.
