VIRGIN Australia is exploring the possibility of providing FIFO mining workers with their own flight lounge in Brisbane.

It's one of several options being considered for the airline's Brisbane domestic terminal after Virgin expanded their existing lounge and closed the cafe lounge that was located between the Mackay and Rockhampton departure gate (40 and 41)  and the airport's satellite pier.

Virgin’s Chief Customer Officer Mark Hassell told the Australian Business Traveller the unused space could provide services specific to mining.

"We’ve got to decide what we want to do with that cafe lounge" he said.

"It could be a mining and resources opportunity for us – potentially, if those guests want a separate area.

“If fly-in, fly-out travellers kind of want a different experience than the standard lounge, maybe we can do something with the café lounge, because we’ve now got an opportunity to do that, but really that would be if there’s demand from their point of view.”
