Virgin Australia has recently announced plans to operate it’s A330-200 airplanes on 3 new international routes. Perth to Abu Dhabi and two unknown origins to Hong Kong and Beijing.
Their A330 never had a need for augmented crews as it only served domestic routes. With this new development, it is more than likely that Virgin Australia will have a strong recruitment drive in the near future. Will it be for cadets or direct entry second officers? We are unsure at the moment but will be sure to keep you updated.
