Send in those requests for annual leave, Virgin Australia has announced a tasty sale on flights between Melbourne and Sydney at a record low price of $39 (including baggage, seat selection, Velocity Frequent Flyer Points, and Status Credits).

The move comes in response to a challenge issued by rival carrier Rex to match their $39 Sydney and Melbourne fares. Safe to say, the challenge has been answered.

“I believe this initiative will singlehandedly revive a moribund travel and hospitality industry in the two cities,” says John Sharp, Rex Deputy Chairman.

“The resulting copycat moves from our competitors will mean that there will be hundreds of thousands of $39 fares available.”

“Virgin Australia is committed to providing travellers with some of the most competitive airfares in the market,” says a Virgin Australia spokesperson.

“Our record low flights between Sydney and Melbourne is just one example of how irresistible it is to fly with Virgin Australia… there’s no excuse not to jump on our website and book these bargain flights before they’re all taken.”

A whole heap of tickets are currently available almost every date from now all the way until December 15th, 2021 (or until they’re all gone).

There really isn’t much else to say about this – get on it ASAP.
