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

Virgin Australia has just joined the End of Financial Year sale frenzy with what its calling the Runway Runaway sale.

In it over one million seats across domestic and international flights are on sale with flight prices starting from $69 (Brisbane to Newcastle, Sydney to Byron or Melbourne to Launceston). Almost 60 routes are available for less than $100 each way.

The sale runs until midnight 30 June 2016.

Virgin is not the first airline to advertise an End of Financial Year sale. Yesterday budget carrier Tigerair announced its own End of Flynancial Year sale, advertising one-way flights as low as $39.

While Virgin Australia's hasn't matched Tigerair in terms of price, the carrier does offer extras such as baggage, seat selection and in-flight entertainment at no extra cost - a bonus for some.

Similar to Tigerair's sale, travel dates vary depending on which route you're taking, however, Virgin's sale trumps Tigerair's in a number of ways.

Eligible travel dates for Virgin's sale span from 19 July 2016 through to 30 March 2017 - Tigerair's is only valid on flights up until 14 December 2016 - making it a good option for anyone looking to book a trip further into the new year.

It's important to note that both sales do not include travel dates during the Christmas holidays.

Not only does Virgin's Runway Runaway sale include popular domestic routes like Sydney to Melbourne from $89, it also includes international routes like Sydney to Los Angeles from $1105 return, Sydney to Bali from $299 one-way and Brisbane to Vanuatu from $259 one-way.

Unlike Tigerair, Virgin Australia doesn't exclude weekend dates. This means you can take that Sydney to Gold Coast weekender for $158 (return) and not have to pay a cent more.
