The flight sales will be a bonus for Australians who have borne the brunt of airfare price increases over the past two years, with an ACCC report finding that fares had hit the highest point in April 2022 as well as flights being overbooked, overcrowded and frequently cancelled.

Virgin velocity members can also use part or all of their points to pay for the discounted flights.
