Ten of the flights are out of Brisbane, two each from Sydney and Canberra, and three are out of and into Melbourne.

“Today’s announcement in partnership with Link Airways underscores our commitment to delivering great value, flexibility and choice to Australians, and boosting connections for customers living in regional Australia,” said Virgin Australia chief strategy and transformation officer Alistair Hartley.

Flights under the code-sharing agreement can be booked via Virgin Australia’s travel agency partners effective on Thursday, and directly on the Virgin Australia website from March.
