As New South Wales celebrates freedom with the easing of some restrictions across the state Virgin has launched its "Plan your escape" sale. A clever name directed at people keen to travel after 3 months of lockdown.
Let's take a look at which seats are on offer:
- Fly Sydney to Coffs Harbour from $49 one way between 11 November to 15 December 2021, 12 January to 6 April, and 27 April to 23 June 2022.
- Fly Sydney to Ballina Byron from $49 one way between 1 November to 15 December 2021, 12 January to 6 April, and 27 April to 23 June 2022.
These celebratory fares can be booked right now with Virgin Australia.
"We're so excited that Freedom Day is finally here and we're even closer to getting the state back in the air. We're so proud of New South Wales and we look forward to celebrating many more freedom days around the country as more Australians get vaccinated against COVID-19. Our industry relies on a connected nation and the quicker everyone is vaccinated, the quicker we can return to the people and the things we love, including travelling more freely," said a Virgin Australia Group spokesperson.
Intrastate travel between Greater Sydney and the regions is expected to resume when the state reaches the target of 80% double vaccinated currently projected to be 25 October.
How good are these Virgin sale fares?
Virgin has stepped up for Freedom Day. The airline announced its return to Coffs Harbour last week dropping flights from Sydney to Coffs from $45. These fares are $5 more than they were during that sale but still beat the next cheapest airline Rex (flying from $99) by 50% (as compared with KAYAK).
Good news for Velocity frequent flyers, all flights until 31 March 2022 will earn double status credits, that's a great opportunity to attain the next status or help you retain your current status.
These Virgin Freedom Day sale flights are on sale until 11:59pm AEST 13 October 2021, unless sold out prior.
