Virgin Australia Aircraft Types.

Boeing 737-300 - Withdrawn.


Following Ansett Australia ceasing operations in September 2001 Virgin Blue had an urgent need to increase capacity and so took a former Ansett Australia Boeing 737-300 on lease.

This aircraft appeared with Virgin Blue titles on a basic white scheme and remained in service until 2004.

It is reported that Virgin Blue had numerous issues with the aircraft which dissuaded them from taking on any further former Ansett aircraft.
