ZK-OXG Airbus A320 registered 20-February-2015

This was offset by the departure of a Boeing 737-33A

As per my previous posts between 30-January-2015 and 14-March-2015 Virgin Australia returned their fleet of 10 Boeing 737-8FE aircraft to the Australian register - see HERE for more.
Virgin Australia also received one new build Boeing during this time
