Hello. We’re Virgin Australia. And we’re back (in a big way).

We’re the airline that’s always done things a little different. Our way. The Virgin way.

What you will need to be successful:
Ability to obtain and hold an ASIC and Airside Drivers permit

Heavily discounted air travel for you and your loved ones (including $1000 worth of travel credits per year)

The safety and security of our people, guests and operations come first. Always. That’s why we’ve put together a comprehensive ‘Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy’. In a nutshell, to work with us, you’ll need to comply with our (and the airport’s) rules and regulations and be fully vaxxed.
