V Australia launches Melbourne-Johannesburg service

V Australia launched twice weekly Melbourne-Johannesburg service on 13-Mar-2010, and now plans to increase frequency to three times weekly on 16-Dec-2010, stating forward bookings have been above expectations - see Route Changes Table for more information. Frequency will be increased following the arrival of its fifth aircraft later this year.
