Virgin Blue’s international subsidiary Pacific Blue has launched non-stop flights between Melbourne and Auckland.

Commenting on the launch Virgin Blue’s Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said the airline’s entry to a new market would introduce additional competition and a new airline choice for travellers.

“Year round the Melbourne-Auckland route is a busy corridor in both directions certainly for business travellers as well as leisure travellers visiting Auckland or entering New Zealand through the Auckland gateway.

“Both cities have an exceptional calendar of major sporting, entertainment and cultural events so we're looking forward to stimulating competition which will encourage more people to fly frequently in both directions,” he said.

Pacific Blue’s General Manager, Commercial, Adrian Hamilton-Manns said Pacific Blue was excited to be offering an affordable travel option for Aucklanders to visit Melbourne. “Melbourne is a hugely popular destination for Aucklanders for business and leisure, and now they can visit this cosmopolitan Australian city without paying a fortune, so it’s a wonderful shot in the arm for tourism in both directions.”

In recent months Pacific Blue has also announced a range of new routes including Auckland to Melbourne and Sydney, Sydney to Vanuatu, and Brisbane to Port Moresby.
