Blink and you’ll miss it! Flights start from just $60 in Virgin Australia’s Happy Hour sale

It doesn't get too much better than this!

Virgin Australia has come up with the goods with its Happy Hour sale today, taking flights down a massive peg with fares from just $60 each way.

You know what you have to do: stop everything and start booking.

There are flights all across Australia and to New Zealand available here. Flights from Melbourne to Launceston, which start at $60 each way and take off during October and November, are the ones to beat. Interestingly, this sale comes just hours after Jetstar dropped its own Tasmania sale, which features flights on this same route from $45 each way on travel between July and December.

You might prefer Jetstar's wider range of dates but if you're happy to travel in October and November, you're only paying $15 more each way to fly with Virgin. For that price, you'll also nab 23kg of baggage, in-flight meals and free entertainment, unlike Jetstar which charges for these extras.

Curiosity taking hold, I scouted out these $45 Jetstar flights, and to even out the playing field, you'd have to purchase the "Plus" bundle. This would give you 20kg of luggage, seat selection, food and drink and frequent flyer points for the princely sum of $40 extra each way, bringing the total up to $170 return compared to Virgin Australia's $120.

Other top fares in Virgin Australia's Happy Hour sale include Sydney to Ballina Byron from $75, Melbourne to Mildura from $89, Sydney to Sunshine Coast from $99 and Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney to Christchurch from $179. These fares are all one-way.

As with all flash sales, this one's available for a limited time only and ends at 11pm tonight (28 June) unless sold out earlier.

Don't delay, book yours today at Virgin Australia online.
