Together with our partner airline Virgin Australia, we operate a diverse fleet of aircraft ranging from our giant Boeing 747s to our innovative Boeing 787s, combining to create one of the youngest fleets in the sky.

Boeing 787-9

When our 787s joined the fleet in October 2014, it represented a huge leap for us, both as an airline and our whole industry in improving our carbon footprint. This aircraft has now become an iconic part of the Virgin fleet.

The B747-400 aircraft consumes up to 13% less fuel than previous versions and engine noise levels are half that of the original 747's in the 1970s.

Boeing 777-300

The B777-300 aircraft makes better use of fuel, meaning lower emissions thanks to a new wing, more efficient engines and a lighter structure.
