Virgin Australia has confirmed it will defer taking delivery of its first Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, from November 2019 to July 2021, due to safety concerns.

It follows last month's Ethiopian Airlines crash and the Lion Air crash in October 2018 which involved Boeing's 737 MAX planes crashing shortly after take-off and killing hundreds of people on both flights.

"Safety is always the number one priority for Virgin Australia," said the company's chief executive Paul Scurrah.
