Virgin Australia Frequently Asked Questions

What's the Virgin Australia check in procedure?

If your domestic flight is connecting to an international flight, it's recommended to leave extra time for check-in. For international flights, Virgin recommends being checked in between 90 minutes and two hours prior to your flight. Online check-in is not available for international flights, so all passengers will need to check in at the airport counter.

    Hi –

    I am planning to book lax to sydney flight through VA and wondering if I can get any promo code for international long haul flight ..

    also, wondering what is the allowed baggage for economy class? I am confused from your site info. VA site shows getaway and elevate fare type is allowed to carry 2x23kg baggage but your site says 1x23kg.
