Virgin Australia Airlines Pty Ltd, formerly Virgin Blue Airlines Pty Ltd, is Australia's second-largest airline as well as the largest by fleet size to utilise the Virgin brand. Now based in Bowen Hills, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, the airline was founded by British businessman Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group. It was established in 2000 with two aircraft operating on a single route, and suddenly found itself catapulted to the position of Australia's second airline after the collapse of Ansett Australia in September 2001. The airline has grown to directly serve 29 cities in Australia; with hubs at Brisbane Airport, Sydney Airport and Melbourne Airport; using a fleet of narrow-body Boeing and Embraer jets and Airbus widebody jets. - Source: Wikipedia
