SA jobs Boost with New Virgin Australia Employment Base

September 18, 2013 Corporate No Comments Email Email

Virgin Australia will set up a new Adelaide base for cabin crew, bringing up to 80 new jobs to South
Australia.
Virgin Australia Chief Customer Officer Mark Hassell said the move highlighted Adelaide as an
important market for Virgin Australia’s domestic operations.

“We have more than 40 flights arriving and departing each day at Adelaide Airport, reaching every
mainland state capital and tourist destinations such as the Gold Coast and Denpasar,” Mr Hassell
said.

“Having a cabin crew base in Adelaide will create significant benefits for our business, giving us
greater flexibility in scheduling flights and crew. These routes have previously been serviced by
cabin crew from other states but this decision means there will be jobs open to South Australian
residents, who can live and train locally.

“This decision is a reflection of our growing network, and the confidence we have in the South
Australian market.

“We pride ourselves on having the best customer service staff of any airline in the Pacific, and we
are looking forward to bringing the best customer service staff in South Australia on board with our
team”, Mr Hassell said.

Virgin Australia has approximately 180 employees based in South Australia, working at Adelaide
Airport in customer facing and ground crew roles.

Virgin Australia Cabin Crew currently work from bases in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
Applications for positions in the new Cabin Crew base will start this week, with the first employeesnathan.scholz@virginaustralia.comnathan.scholz@virginaustralia.comnathan.scholz@virginaustralia.comnathan.scholz@virginaustralia.comnathan.scholz@virginaustralia.comc
expected to start training in November.

Candidates are expected to share Virgin Australia’s values: resourcefulness, innovation, caring,
enthusiasm, excellence, individuality and integrity.

Virgin Australia encourages potential applicants who believe they have the passion to create a truly
unique Virgin Australia experience for customers to visit www.virginaustralia.com

Virgin Australia rebranded in 2011, moving from the former low-cost carrier Virgin Blue, and
international operations Pacific Blue and V Australia.
