Air New Zealand chief executive Christopher Luxon has taken his seat on the Virgin Australia board.

Air New Zealand owns almost 26 per cent in Virgin Australia, making it the airline's largest single shareholder.

Luxon was joined on the board last week by representatives from fellow major airline shareholders in Virgin Australia, Singapore Airlines chief executive Goh Choon Phong and Etihad chief executive James Hogan.

The three airlines and Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group collectively own about 79 per cent of Virgin Australia.

The remaining six directors include five independent directors and Virgin Australia managing director John Borghetti.
