Virgin Australia has reopened its lounge at Canberra Airport as the airline expects domestic travel to strengthen.
Canberra's lounge is the last of the airline's seven to reopen after they all closed on March 24, 2020, right before the airline entered voluntary administration.
A Virgin Australia spokesperson said the airline was looking forward to welcoming guests as they returned to domestic travel.
"As travel demand continues to strengthen, and state borders remain open, we're excited to offer a fantastic network of domestic lounges for our frequent flyers to access at major airports around Australia," the spokesperson said.
"Guests of our Canberra lounge will be able to enjoy our new menu which is gradually rolling-out across the network and includes a selection of sandwiches, salads, wraps and healthy snacks, freshly prepared on site."
Canberra Airport head of aviation Michael Thomson said the lounge's reopening was exciting news for the airport.
"Not only does this reaffirm their commitment to the Canberra market, but it also confirms that business travel is on its way back," he said.
Lounges in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney were reopened in November after Virgin Australia exited voluntary administration.
Perth and Gold Coast lounges reopened in January, and a new-look lounge in Adelaide reopened in February.
The airline expects to return to 80 per cent of pre-COVID-19 activity by July.
