Virgin Australia sale boasts $67 fares available in peak summer

Posted: 7 November 2016 5:26 pm


Hundreds of domestic routes discounted.

Virgin Australia has just launched a new, domestic flight sale featuring one-way flights starting at $67.

Some of the lowest-priced routes in the sale include Melbourne-Launceston for $67 one way, Sydney-Gold Coast for $79 one way and Brisbane-Sydney for $92 one way.

While dates vary slightly depending on the destination, most fares are available during the peak summer months from 31 January until 29 March, with additional availability from 27 April until 22 June. These dates do cover most of the travel period that Virgin’s recent Checkout Sale was available for at similar prices, which is ideal for those who missed out the first time around.

Announced the same day as Qantas’ Getaway Sale, Virgin’s offering does undercut the flying kangaroo’s fares.

The lowest-priced route in Virgin’s sale, Melbourne-Launceston, comes in at $67 one way, while the same fare with Qantas comes in at $79. As both airlines include perks like 23kg of checked baggage, seat selection, in-flight food and entertainment, it’s a solid savings of $12 each way.

The Sunseeker sale is on until 11:59pm AEDT on 14 November.
