Virgin Australia drops 300,000 sale fares from $45 in time for school holidays

Virgin Australia has just launched one of its “cheapest deals of the year”.

Over 300,000 domestic fares will be discounted for two days or until sold out.

The cheapest flights offered are Sydney and Byron Bay starting from $45.

Sydneysiders can also book seats on flights to the Gold Coast from $65 and to the Sunshine Coast from $69. Discounted fares are also available in the opposite direction.

Australian travelers have the chance to get their hands on flights to Perth from Melbourne and Sydney from as little as $199, or flights from the WA capital to east coast cities for the same price.

Flights to Cairns are available from $95 when traveling from Brisbane, $115 from Sydney and $165 from Perth.

The discounted fares are available to book now for travel between July 1 and August 31 this year, with the airline pointing out that this includes the July school holiday period.

Virgin Australia executive Libby Minogue said she hoped the sale would help families travel amid the high cost of living.

“The sale includes hotspots such as the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Perth, Cairns, Adelaide, Hobart and more,” he said.

“We hope the sale will allow even more Australians to take a break with their families during the school holidays.

“We urge travelers to hurry to avoid missing out on incredible offers, especially during the school holiday period.”

Sale ends at midnight AEST on Saturday 8 June.

Other discounted routes include Melbourne-Gold Coast from $79, Melbourne-Hobart from $79, Sydney-Brisbane from $79, Melbourne-Adelaide from $85, Sydney-Melbourne from $89, Brisbane-Hamilton Island from $109, Adelaide- Gold Coast from $109 and Adelaide-Darwin from $139.

All sales fares mentioned above are one-way Economy Lite fares, which include carry-on baggage but additional charges for checked baggage.

It’s not the only sale Virgin Australia has going on this week.

To celebrate the launch of new services between Melbourne and Uluru, and between Brisbane and Uluru, the airline has launched an Uluru sale with fares from $119 one-way, also available now until midnight on Saturday.

Virgin Australia CEO Jayne Hrdlicka described the sale as “incredible value”.

“Thanks to our wonderful partnership with some of the world’s leading airlines, including Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines and United Airlines, we will now connect Uluru with a single flight ticket to more than 600 cities around the world, opening a new gateway for travelers international tourists to explore Australia’s iconic Red Centre,” he said.

The new flights have been launched in partnership with the Northern Territory Government and Voyages Indigenous Tourism, operators of Ayers Rock Resort.
