Virgin Australia has announced two new routes in time for the September school holidays. The new direct services will go on sale from today, with introductory one-way Economy sale fares starting from $59.
Virgin Australia has announced it will be introducing two new direct services ahead of the September school holidays as the airline pivots its network schedule to reconnect Australia in new ways.
The new services, focusing on markets with open borders, include the resumption of flights between Adelaide – Darwin from 6 September and the introduction of a brand-new direct service, never before operated in the airline’s 21-year history, between Adelaide – Launceston, commencing on 7 September.
To kickstart the launch of the services, Virgin Australia is offering the following one-way Economy sale fares from today until midnight this Friday 13 August or until sold-out:
- Adelaide – Launceston//Launceston – Adelaide from $59
- Adelaide – Darwin//Darwin – Adelaide from $119
For customers looking to travel at the pointy end, Virgin Australia will continue to sell its Business Class fares on these services:
- Adelaide – Launceston//Launceston – Adelaide from $299
- Adelaide – Darwin//Darwin – Adelaide from $529
Along with checked baggage and seat selection included in all airfares, Virgin Australia is also offering double Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Credits on all new eligible bookings (excluding Getaway fares) made by midnight on Tuesday 10 August.
Virgin Australia Group Chief Commercial Officer, Dave Emerson said the airline was focused on reconnecting Australians in new ways and creating more travel opportunities.
“With open borders between South Australia and Tasmania and Northern Territory, we’re able to finally start direct flights between Adelaide-Darwin, as well as offer a new direct service between Adelaide- Launceston,” said Mr Emerson.
“I don’t know about others but for me, there’s no better way to clear the lockdown cobwebs than heading off to experience a new place or reconnect with old friends.”
Sale fares are available for select travel dates between September 2021 and June 2022 and the airline is offering booking flexibility to change or cancel to travel credit with no fees, available for travel up to 28 February 2022.
Virgin Australia customers who hold travel credits or Future Flight credits are also encouraged to take advantage of the great value fares, which are expected to sell-out quickly.
