Changes to Hong Kong route

Virgin Australia is permanently suspending their HKG-SYD service effective from the 2nd March 2020 with the last flight departing Hong Kong on 1st March.

The codeshare agreement with Virgin Australia means that there are Virgin Atlantic customers that are affected by this route cancellation. The Customer Centre is able to help facilitate any changes that will be necessary for affected customers.

Redemption flights start from 16,000 points

Did you know that with our partner Virgin Australia you could fly from Sydney to Los Angeles from 94,000 points return plus any applicable taxes, fees and surcharges.
