Virgin Australia is celebrating Freedom Day by launching 50,000 sale fares on services between Sydney and Byron Bay and Coffs Harbour from just $49.
The bargain airfares, a thank you to NSW residents who have rolled up their sleeves to get vaccinated, are available for travel from 1 November 2021 - shortly after the foreshadowed resumption of travel within NSW - and 23 June 2022.
The airline’s generous Freedom Day promotion is giving NSW residents every opportunity to reacquaint themselves with their own state and to enjoy their rediscovered freedoms after a lengthy lockdown period.
NSW residents are encouraged to book the $49* regional sale fares at virginaustralia.com before the sale ends at midnight AEST this Wednesday 13 October 2021, or until sold out. The airline expects the fares will sell quickly.
Guests can book with complete confidence thanks to Virgin Australia’s Flexible Flying policy, which provides unlimited booking flexibility to change or cancel to travel credit without fees, for travel up to 28 February 2022.
Statement from a Virgin Australia Group spokesperson:
“We’re so excited that Freedom Day is finally here and we’re even closer to getting the state back in the air,” they said.
“To celebrate today’s milestone and to thank the vast majority of New South Wales residents for doing the right thing and rolling up their sleeves to get vaccinated, we’re offering fares to Byron Bay and Coffs Harbour from just $49, until midnight this Wednesday.
“Virgin Australia is giving NSW residents every reason to make the most of the easing of restrictions and life after the foreshadowed resumption of intrastate travel on 25 October, by planning a change of scenery to enjoy their newfound freedoms.
“We encourage all NSW residents to make the most of the $49 sale fares which we expect will sell-out quickly.
“We’re so proud of New South Wales and we look forward to celebrating many more freedom days around the country as more Australians get vaccinated against COVID-19. Our industry relies on a connected nation and the quicker everyone is vaccinated, the quicker we can return to the people and the things we love, including travelling more freely.
