Virgin Australia (VA/VOZ)

Launched as a no-frills domestic carrier by Sir Richard Branson in 2000, Virgin Australia was originally known as Virgin Blue. The early years of the airline were turbulent and unprofitable but it has now achieved a stable position as one of Australia's most important internal airlines sitting alongside Quantas and Regional Express. In recent years the Virgin no-frills element has given way to a more upmarket approach.
