V Australia, Sir Richard Branson’s new long-haul
Australian carrier and a part of the Virgin Blue Group of Airlines, has

operations and crew management needs.
V Australia will use the
Sabre AirCrews Crew Management Suite and the Sabre AirOps
Operations Suite to manage its daily maintenance and flight

Airline Solutions, who has been a partner with us at
Virgin Blue. They came through for us ahead of our
scheduled launch, on budget and with absolute
