Virgin Australia will resume flights between Sydney and Canberra from January 30, 2022, with more than 50 services available between the two capital cities each week, under an exclusive agreement with Link Airways.  

The services, which were first paused in April 2020 at the height of the pandemic, will be operated using Link Airways’ Saab 340 B Plus aircraft and crew, with up to nine flights per weekday.

The resumption of Virgin Australia Sydney-Canberra services will be welcome news for corporate, leisure, and government sector customers who will now have more choice and flexibility when travelling to and from Capital Hill. 

The agreement with Link Airways will extend the Virgin Australia domestic network reach into markets like Sydney-Canberra that its own 737-800 aircraft cannot serve effectively. As the airline quickly ramps up capacity across domestic and short-haul international services it will continue to evaluate new destinations and opportunities to connect Australia. Since September, Virgin Australia has launched 15 new services, some of which have never been operated in the airline’s 21-year history, as the revitalised business takes flight under new ownership.
