Virgin Australia reopened its Canberra airport lounge today, the final piece of the puzzle that is its slimmed-down domestic lounge network.
The move comes almost a year since the pandemic forced Virgin to shutter all of its airport lounges.
Under new owner Bain Capital, the airline has promised to continue to operate a domestic lounge network, albeit with a reduced size that focuses on the airports with the most frequent flyer travel.
As of today, Virgin is operating lounges in the following domestic airport terminals:
- Gold Coast
The airline’s Cairns, Mackay, Alice Springs and Darwin lounge have been permanently closed.
Virgin Australia Lounge visitors currently enjoy complimentary snacks like sandwiches, salads and wraps, as well as drinks including barista-made coffee and alcoholic beverages (from noon).
Some facilities and services remain closed due to Covid, including showers, business centres and valets.
Virgin reopened its Adelaide lounge last month, which sports a fresh new look that will eventually be rolled out across the lounge network.
More information about Virgin Australia lounges, including the experience on offer and access rules, is available here.
