Select flights from Melbourne and Brisbane to Fiji are set for an upgrade when Virgin Australia switches from the current Boeing 737 aircraft to the Airbus A330.

The A330, normally reserved for East Coast routes to Perth, is fitted with personal TV screens in economy,and features 'The Business' cabin up front.

Commencing 25 June until 8 October, 2016, Virgin Australia will roster the A330 aircraft each Saturday, between Melbourne and Fiji. While each Sunday, between 26 June and 2 October, 2016, flights from Brisbane to Fiji will utilise the Airbus.

The new services are in addition to the existing Sydney to Fiji weekend routes, which commenced in 2015.

Business class travellers will be the biggest winners of the equipment change. The current reclining 737 aircraft business class product, seen on domestic and Trans-Tasman services, will be replaced with the crowd pleasing 'The Business' suite.

Complete with lay-flat beds, large TV screens, fine-dining meal options designed by Luke Mangan and clever storage options, 'The Business' is a true international-grade product and a favourite among Australian business and leisure travellers.

I’m a passionate traveller and a first class nomad wannabe. I have a love for the written word and enjoy sharing stories that inspire travel. I like ordinary but love extraordinary. I’ll dance and sing karaoke to anything 80’s, will drink hot tea even if 40 degrees, love food and have a wicked sweet tooth. Architecture excites me, the window seat thrills me and anything aviation enamours me. I’m a perpetual dreamer who lives by Saint Augustine’s wise words – “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”. My intention is to read War and Peace!
