After the Christmas Eve chaos with all the cancelled flights, Virgin Australia has a massive Boxing Day sale this week to try and get Aussie customers back on side. 

Lasting for 48 hours until midnight on December 28th (unless sold out before then), one-way fares to both domestic and international destinations are going for as little as $48. That price is inclusive of taxes, Velocity Frequent Flyer Points, and up to double Status Credits as part of an ongoing loyalty promotion.

“We are excited to launch one of Virgin Australia’s biggest ever Boxing Day sales, with thousands of discounted seats available from as low as $48, for just 48 hours,” the airline shared.

“These very low fares are only available for two days, and as Aussie travellers plan their holidays for 2022, we’re confident they will be hard to pass up.”

35% has been chopped off literally thousands of fares. Amongst the 33 destinations you can head to on the cheap include international favourites like Fiji, Bali, and New Zealand’s Queenstown. A return flight from Brisbane to Fiji will set you back around $399 or $499 if you fly out from Sydney instead. Melbourne to Bali, meanwhile, is going for $479 return.

Closer to home, one-way flights from Melbourne to Hobart is $48 and Sydney to Launceston is $49, if you fancy a trip to Tasmania.

And with its Flexible Flying policy now in place, this gives Virgin customers the power to change their booking or cancel it completely with no fees whatsoever for all domestic travel until April 30th and all international travel to December 31st 2022.
