Virgin Australia announced last week that is offering booking flexibility for travel until 30 June this year.
The extended flexibility, for customers whose holiday plans have been spoiled by the Christmas virus outbreak, is part of Virgin ‘Passenger Promise’, travellers able to make unlimited date changes to bookings made by 31 March 2021, without incurring any change fees, for travel until 30 June 2021.
A Virgin spokesman made the announcement which offers 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.”
Along with more generous booking flexibility, Virgin also offered 300,000 seats starting at just $69, which was available only for 1-day last Thursday.
The cheap fares are being made available as part of the airline’s Happy Hour sale, which is held weekly each Thursday.
Happy Hour fares are available for selected travel dates and destinations from 18 January to 5 June 2021.
