Sunshine Coast Airport welcomes the announcement that Virgin Australia will increase capacity for the Sunshine Coast, including a new four-times-a-week service from Adelaide between 29 March and 25 April 2021.

Virgin Australia has also added more direct services between Sunshine Coast-Melbourne and Sunshine Coast-Sydney.

Sunshine Coast Airport Head of Corporate Relations Ayllie White said Virgin Australia’s extra services are well timed for the popular Easter period.

“The new Virgin Adelaide service will give passengers greater flexibility and choice, not only providing locals with the opportunity to visit the Festival State straight from their doorstep, but opening up our beautiful region to more South Australian visitors,” Ms White said.

“With travel demand remaining high due to Australian’s desire to explore, we expect the Easter service will be very popular with local people seeking new horizons such as South Australia’s world-renowned festivals, wineries, food and spectacular sceneries.

“We also know that South Australians love the Sunshine Coast with many diverse experiences to enjoy from our beautiful beaches and lush tropical hinterland to savoring the delicious local produce at our restaurants, cafes and markets.”

Ms White said the announcement comes at an important time for our region.

“This additional capacity will certainly provide a boost to the local economy, with up to 28,000 new seats to and from Sunshine Coast Airport for the month of April, including 5,500 from the Adelaide service alone.”

Visit Sunshine Coast Chief Executive Officer Matt Stoeckel said the service would provide a well-timed boost for domestic tourism to the Sunshine Coast region.

“This new service is important for the tourism industry’s path to recovery and will provide an opportunity for more South Australians to visit the Sunshine Coast region,” Mr Stoeckel said.
