Delta and Virgin Australia Announce New Codeshare for Flights to Australia

September 19, 2011 By: Jesse Uruchima

Delta Airlines has launched a new codeshare agreement with V Australia, Virgin Australia's long-haul international carrier, on all flights between Los Angeles and the Australian cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, operated by V Australia. The expanded code sharing means more options when booking trans-Pacific travel on Delta or V Australia, as well as benefits such as accrual of frequent flier miles and premium lounge access regardless of which airline operates the flight.

The customer experience, from November, flights operated by V Australia will arrive at Delta's Terminal 5 at Los Angeles International Airport. This will allow for easier and faster connections within the same terminal to the rest of Delta's network, as well as access to new customs and immigration facilities in Terminal 5.

Delta Vice President Charlie Pappas said, "The start of trans-Pacific code sharing and arrival co-location at T5 in Los Angeles mark the first major steps toward establishing our joint venture, which will provide significant benefits for our customers."

Merren McArthur, Virgin Australia group executive, said, "Since receiving U.S. government approval in June, Delta and Virgin Australia have moved quickly to deliver the consumer benefits that are enabled by our joint venture. The joint venture will allow us to offer more choice and a more seamless travel experience from November, providing guests with three trans-Pacific services per day and allowing us to spread our respective departure times out of Sydney to improve connections.”
