The World Airline Awards are decided on by airline passengers from around the world, who judge their end-to-end airline experience in a voluntary survey. This year, the survey was carried out over a 10-month period, included over 200 domestic and international airlines and canvassed the opinions of over 18 million airline passengers.
Meanwhile, as foreshadowed recently in a Blog Post about the upgraded Moranbah Airport (HERE), Virgin Australia have started flying fly-in fly-out (FIFO) charters to Moranbah Airport from Townsville utilising Skyest Airline-operated ATR 72-500 aircraft.
The first ATR to touch down on the new charter service was VH-FVU, which arrived late on Monday 16 July as "Virgin 703 Alpha". VH-FVU soon departed back to Townsville, before returning to Moranbah again early on Tuesday 17 July, this time as "Virgin 700 Alpha".
I hope to get to Moranbah soon to grab a photo!
