Coronavirus and travel: Virgin Australia suspends all international flights

Virgin Australia will suspend all international flights and has announced more cuts to domestic capacity as quarantine measures accelerate amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The airline on Wednesday said it will suspend all international flying from March 30 to June 14 and reduce group domestic capacity by 50 per cent.

Virgin's measures follow Qantas' 90 per cent reduction in international flights on Tuesday and is the equivalent of grounding 53 aircraft.

Virgin said it will operate a reduced international schedule between now and March 29 to enable Australians to return home and visitors to return to their point of origin.
