The second of only two Boeing 737-700s now in the Virgin Australia fleet, VH-VBZ, has been repainted.
The aircraft, first delivered to Virgin Blue in 2005 and named Maliblue, emerged from the Flying Colours paintshop at Townsville Airport on Friday evening wearings its new Virgin Australia colours and bearing the new name Cronulla Beach.
VBZ then returned to service the following morning when it operated VA362 to Brisbane.
Virgin Australia operates the two 144-seat 737-700s alongside 76 larger 737-800s.
