Richard Bonner, Regional Vice President NW Australia Ground Handling, said: "I couldn’t be more pleased for a successful, safe and secure start up to the Virgin Australia operation. The KGI team have been the ground handling provider for the Qantas group for many years, and one of only two ground handlers at the airport. Virgin Australia have been highly satisfied with the start up and I thank the team for their ‘excellence from touchdown to takeoff’."
