BREAKFAST DEALS: Aviation antics

The ACCC takes centre stage as the local aviation industry undergoes a seismic shift, while Neptune Marine has a coup.

Virgin Australia just won’t let up on senior rival Qantas Airways, with a trio of deals announced yesterday that just add to the changing picture of Australian aviation competition. The ACCC is centre stage. Meanwhile, Neptune Marine Services was up in a big bad way as a Singaporean suitor emerged. Western Desert Resources wasn’t so lucky. Mining magnates Andrew 'Twiggy' Forrest and Gina Rinehart had a spell each of bad luck yesterday, while Nathan Tinkler is lashing out hard at Whitehaven Coal. And finally, there’s one less player looking for a wing at Ingham Enterprises.

Virgin Australia, Tiger Airways, Singapore Airlines, Skywest, Qantas Airways, Emirates, Flight Centre

Two things have emerged from the parcel of deals that Virgin Australia announced yesterday.
