Melbourne T3 revamp kicks off

Melbourne T3 revamp kicks off
By admin

Melbourne Airport has partnered with Virgin Australia to carry out a refurbishment of its domestic Terminal 3, with work now underway.

The makeover aims to bring the terminal’s facilities “in line with the airline’s new brand statement positioning” with business to continue as usual during the work.

“All flights will continue to operate normally from T3 during the refurbishment, and we’ll be working closely with Virgin Australia and our other airline customers to minimise inconvenience for passengers while the work is being carried out,” Melbourne Airport chief executive Chris Woodruff said.

Due for completion by the end of the year, the refurbishment is part of a $1 billion program of infrastructure upgrades to be carried out over the next five years.

Virgin Australia chief operating officer Sean Donohue said the refurbishment was the latest in a series of initiatives undertaken by the airline in Melbourne in the past year including a new corporate lounge, new A330 services and increased frequencies to Brisbane, Sydney and Hobart.

“Melbourne is one of our busiest domestic airports and we serve over seven million guests every year – more than 19,000 every single day,” Donohue said.

He revealed the airline would also introduce a premium valet service at the airport later this year.
