VH-VPI then turned around and operated the evening VOZ1247/1250 service into Rockhampton.
VH-VPI has finally been placed into Virgin Australia service after sitting at Townsville for some time after its delivery to Australia in September 2013. In late April, VH-VPI positioned to Brisbane where it has been hangared prior to entering service today.
I suspect that with fellow ATR VH-FVR grounded in New South Wales (see Blog Post below), and VH-FVH flying into Townsville recently for maintenance, VARA need to utilise VH-VPI to make up the short-fall in capacity.
