Virgin Australia has today launched record low airfares between Sydney and Melbourne from only $39 including baggage, seat selection and Velocity Frequent Flyer Points and Status Credits. The deal matches Regional Express who launched their own $39 seats earlier in the day.

“And with all Virgin Australia flights, our $39 airfares include baggage, seat selection and Velocity Frequent Flyer Points and Status Credits, so there’s no excuse not to jump on our website and book these bargains flights before they’re all taken.”

Rex says its “unprecedented” new fare is even cheaper than the cost of catching a bus between the two capital cities and is valid for travel until 28 August.

The Rex $39 fare between Sydney and Melbourne includes 23kg worth of check-in baggage and refreshments on board.

Business class seats between Sydney and Melbourne on Rex will also be available one-way from $299.

The Hon John Sharp, AM, Deputy Chairman of Rex, says the airline’s “cheaper than the bus” fares will see airfares between the two cities even lower than the Federal Government-sponsored Tourism Aviation Network Support program (TANS) fare and will jump-start leisure and business travel.

Virgin Australia fares are available for select dates and destinations between today and 15 December 2021*.
