Virgin Australia is an Australian-based airline. It is the largest airline by fleet size to use the Virgin brand. It's headquarters is based in South Bank, Queensland. The airline commenced services on 31 August 2000 as Virgin Blue, with two aircraft on a single route. It has since grown to directly serve 32 cities in Australia, from hubs in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. In 2011, the airline went through a massive transformation—the changing of its brand to Virgin Australia. New wide-body aircraft were acquired for use to compete with Qantas, and the roll-out of business class across all the Virgin Australia network. In August 2020, amid a pandemic, the airline retired all Boeing 777 aircraft from service.
