Virgin Australia has ramped up its bid for the corporate passenger by opening a new lounge at Canberra Airport and introducing business class seats on routes to and from the Australian capital.
Chief executive John Borghetti said it will provide the corporate market with a choice of business class product for the first time in 10 years.
"Canberra is an important hub for corporate, government and leisure travellers and we now offer a premium end-to-end travel experience that not only encapsulates Virgin Australia's distinct look and feel but also our high standard of service," Borghetti said.
"For the first time in over a decade Australians will have a choice when it comes to competition in business class travel in and out of the capital."
News of Virgin's developments came as a new domestic terminal opened at Canberra with more check-in counters, baggage carousels and screening areas.
The carrier's newly opened lounge has capacity for 300.
