“We are pleased to have been able to streamline our Melbourne to Hong Kong schedule so quickly after our inaugural flight,” general manager of network management, Hope Antzoulatos, said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We know a consistent departure time from both Melbourne and Hong Kong is important to our guests who are travelling for both leisure and business,” she said.

“We will continue to review our schedule beyond March 2018 and will update with any changes at a later date.”

An indepth feature on Virgin Australia’s expansion into the Hong Kong and greater China markets appears in the August issue of Australian Aviation, now on sale.
