Virgin Australia, the trading name of Virgin Australia Airlines Pty Ltd, is an Australian-based airline. The airline's headquarters is based in South Bank, Queensland. It is the largest airline by fleet size to use the Virgin brand. It commenced services on 31 August 2000 as Virgin Blue, with two aircraft on a single route. It suddenly found itself as a major airline in Australia's domestic market after the collapse of Ansett Australia in September 2001. The airline has since grown to directly serve 33 cities in Australia, from hubs in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. In 2011, the airline went through a massive transformation and changing of its brand to Virgin Australia.
