Virgin Australia Just Launched a Huge Sale on Flights to Melbourne


The flight deals just keep on coming, and we’re not mad about it.

Virgin Australia has just launched a massive sale, with flights to Melbourne from $75 including baggage, seat selection and velocity frequent flyer points. 

How good; cheap flights with free baggage and actual seats of your choice. We now know – thanks to TikTok – that there are strategic places to sit on a plane for the best experience, and now is the time to take advantage of these hacks

Virgin is calling the sale ‘Ready. Set. Melbourne’, and it will run from midnight tonight until midnight on 3 May 2021. The sale fares will be available to fly between 14 July 2021 and 16 March 2022.

Fares will include Launceston to Melbourne from $75, Adelaide to Melbourne from $79, Hobart to Melbourne from $99 and Brisbane to Melbourne from $135. 

“We’re continuing to support the recovery of Australia’s tourism industry by offering our guests a premium experience at irresistible prices and our massive sale blitz on flights to Melbourne start from only $75,” a Virgin spokesperson said.

“There’s never been a better time to visit Victoria or explore its incredible capital city Melbourne offering high-end restaurants, cool laneways and first-class cultural and sporting events.

“Our Ready. Set. Melbourne sale gives Australians another great reason to get out and explore our incredible country.”

Australian airlines have basically started a sale war, as they fight the tourism crisis brought on by COVID-19, and try to get people back in the air around the post-pandemic restrictions. 

Although they’re usually pretty short and sweet, flight deals are literally coming about weekly. Lucky for us, this Virgin Ready. Set. Melbourne promotion is running for just over a week, so there’s time to plan a getaway in advance.

Head to the Virgin Australia website from midnight tonight to book your fare.
