Virgin Australia has priced a further $64.6 million enhanced equipment notes offering, following strong demand for an earlier $732.6 million offering.

This brings the total amount of notes to be issued by the carrier to $797.3 million, at an average coupon rate of 5.6%.

The notes are backed by a collateralised pool of 24 Boeing aircraft within Virgin’s existing fleet.
