A spokesperson for the Virgin Australia Group said customer demand for flights was expected to be at 80% of pre-COVID-19 capacity by July 2021 and the re-opening of the full lounge network would be a boost for business and leisure travellers.
“We’re pleased to confirm that from today all Virgin Australia domestic lounges will be open nationally, including in Canberra,” the spokesperson said.
“As travel demand continues to strengthen, and state borders remain open, we’re excited to offer a fantastic network of domestic lounges for our frequent flyers to access at major airports around Australia.
“Guests of our Canberra Lounge will be able to enjoy our new menu which is gradually rolling-out across the network and includes a selection of sandwiches, salads, wraps and healthy snacks, freshly prepared on site.
“Virgin Australia is committed to offering its frequent flyers lounges and looks forward to welcoming guests as they return to leisure and corporate travel,” the spokesperson said.
The re-opening of the Canberra Lounge follows the debut of Virgin Australia’s ‘Lounge of the Future’ in Adelaide last month.
Virgin Australia Lounges are available in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Perth and Adelaide.
