Blink and you'll miss it. PS you don't want to miss it.

Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check our list of current flight sales to find a bargain!

Virgin Australia has launched a short and sweet sale to welcome the summer with journeys Australia-wide from $72 each way. Flights are for travel in October-November and January-March with specific dates varying per route to avoid any peak holiday periods.

Being a flash sale, these fares aren't sticking around for long and are destined to end at midnight 13 September unless sold out prior.

The cheapest and most stand-out tickets are on journeys between Sydney and Byron Bay. These are going at $72 each way or $144 return, which is a steal for an all-inclusive airline when you consider that flights on budget airline Jetstar are on sale for $110 return for similar dates. Throw in checked luggage and a meal, if required, and you could potentially wind up paying more on a budget airline than on an all-inclusive one.

You'll have to fly between 30 January and 20 March to catch these Virgin Australia flights. On the upside, being outside that prime Christmas holiday travel period, you can expect your stay to boast thinning crowds.

With a flight time of 1 hour 15 minutes, this route has all the makings of a quick getaway to cure those post-Christmas blues. Compared to a road trip, which takes a minimum of eight hours, it's also a faster way to hit the beach.

Prices increase over the weekends, but if you can afford to take a few days off, flying out on Thursday and back on Wednesday can secure you these hot fares.

Searching for sunshine elsewhere? Virgin Australia also has sale fares from Launceston-Melbourne for $75, Brisbane-Newcastle for $85, Sydney-Coffs Harbour for $87 and Melbourne-Mildura for $87 – just to name a few.

You can find a full list of fares on sale until 13 September below. All can be booked direct with Virgin Australia here.
