Dunedin's thrice-weekly Brisbane flights will continue and the city will retain its international airport. Virgin Australia announced yesterday the flights would continue after October, despite an alliance with Air New Zealand ending that month. Flights would depart Brisbane on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, and Dunedin on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Thursday flight from Brisbane replaced a Friday flight, and the Friday flight from Dunedin replaced a Saturday flight. Enterprise Dunedin public relations and promotions adviser Sarah Bramhall said this year was the third of a three-year campaign focusing on Queensland and the Brisbane flight.
