To celebrate Queensland borders reopening today, Virgin Australia has dropped more than half a million sale fares to the Sunshine State from as low as $85.
The Virgin Australia ‘Good to Go’ Queensland sale, in partnership with Tourism Events Queensland, will run until midnight AEST on Tuesday 14 July, offering over 500,000 sale fares to destinations including Brisbane, Cairns, the Gold Coast, Hamilton Island and Townsville.
The sale fares include a 23-kilogram baggage allowance for economy-class bookings.
Virgin Australia’s chief commercial officer, John Macleod, said it was great news for tourism and local businesses that the Queensland border was reopening to interstate travellers.
“Queensland is a very important market to Virgin Australia and we’re delighted to be able to fly travellers back to the Sunshine State,” he said.
“Virgin Australia transports millions of travellers each and every year to holiday amongst Queensland’s beautiful beaches, vast landscapes and tropical weather, and our Good to Go sale will help to reboot the Queensland tourism industry.
“With fares from as low as $85 including baggage, we hope the sale gets travellers on the holidays they’ve been dreaming about or to reunite them with their family and friends.”
As part of the sale, travellers will be able to choose from a host of travel dates for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021.
And, for added confidence, Virgin is waiving applicable change fees for bookings with travel between now and 30 September 2020.
