Tassie on Virgin Blue’s path

Virgin Blue will soon add Tasmania to its list of destinations following its call for staff in the region. Virgin says it will fly from Brisbane to either Hobart or Launceston next year, the port and launch dates are yet to be finalised. This follows Virgin's announcement of a Brisbane to Adelaide route beginning in February 2001. Meanwhile, Impulse Airlines is considering adding a direct Brisbane to Melbourne service to its itinerary.
