Virgin Australia has dropped 300,000 sale fares starting at just $69 from 4.00pm AEDT until midnight AEDT tonight, Thursday 14 January with change fee-free flights on bookings for travel until 30 June 2021.
Virgin Australia says it will be the first Australian airline to offer booking flexibility for travel until 30 June 2021, under a revised customer policy announced today.
The extended flexibility, part of Virgin Australia’s ‘Passenger Promise’, will see Australian travellers able to make unlimited date changes to their bookings, without incurring any change fees, for bookings made by 31 March 2021, for travel until 30 June 2021.
A Virgin Australia Group spokesman said that today’s announcement is about giving customers peace of mind when making new bookings or changing an existing booking.
“We’re committed to our guests during these uncertain times and we’re proud to offer flexibility for travel until 30 June 2021,” he said.
“We’ve seen many travellers’ plans impacted by domestic border restrictions and so we’re here to give them comfort when booking a Virgin Australia flight that they’ll be able to change their travel date if they need to.
“With a vaccine on the way, coupled with the fantastic way Australians have managed the pandemic, we’re optimistic that border restrictions will be lifted in the not-too-distant future. Our extended flexibility will help to give travellers the confidence they need to make a booking and plan that long-awaited holiday or family reunion, knowing that the booking is protected.
