Ovolo media coverage!
From 1 June 2017, Virgin Australia and Air Canada began a new codeshare agreement on flights between Los Angeles and Toronto, Calgary and Montreal, providing improved regional access to Australian destinations. As part of the strategic cooperation between the airlines, Virgin Australia plans to place its code on Air Canada’s direct flights between Australia and Vancouver in a subsequent stage of the agreement.
Hong Kong hospitality chain Ovolo has taken its Australian presence to four hotels after buying the 50-room New Inchcolm Hotel & Suites in Brisbane for $16.5 million.
Tanya Ritter is with the heritage-meets-modern-luxury Ovolo Hotel located harbour-side, on Woolloomooloo Wharf. Location-wise, it is perfect: just a short stroll from the trendy inner-city eastern-suburb hubs of Potts Point and Kings Cross, and 1.5 kilometres east of the Sydney central business district.

“If you ask a Sydneysider which part of our city they’d pick for a staycation, chances are Darling Harbour wouldn’t be their number one choice. It’s not that it doesn’t have its perks; it’s just that it’s got a reputation for being more targeted to tourists than locals. However, my interest in a Darling Harbour stay was given a boost when I heard Ovolo Hotels had a property in the ‘hood.”
