Virgin Australia and Qantas are pursuing seat allocations on Australia-Italy routes, to be used in conjunction with code-share partners, by themselves or their respective subsidiaries Tigerair and Jetstar.

Virgin Australia has applied to the International Air Services Commission (IASC) seeking an allocation of 300 third-country seats per week, to be used to code-share with Singapore Airlines via Singapore and Etihad Airways via Abu Dhabi on the Italy route.

The application states:http://www.lagunaphuket.com/events/event.php?event=3

  • The capacity will be utilised by Virgin Australia or one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries;
  • The capacity will be utilised for joint services with Singapore Airlines and Etihad Airways;
  • The allocation is granted for a period of five years from the date of the determination; and
  • The allocation will be fully utilised by 31 July 2018.

Virgin Australia supplied the IASC with further information nominating Tiger International Number1 Pty Ltd as the wholly-owned subsidiary of Virgin Australia International Airlines (VAIA).

Qantas has also applied to the IASC for an allocation of 300 third-country seats per week, to be used to code share with Emirates on the Italy route. The application states that the capacity may be utilised by Qantas “or another Australian carrier which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qantas”.
