Virgin Blue Australia

> > Flying with Virgin

The best tourist attractions in Australia are far from each other. Virgin Blue Australia can get you to see more of them, more often and at a good price.

As airlines are competing for more clients, their services go beyond flying.

So if you are not sure what to do on your next vacation check their holidays program and see what they have on offer for you.

As with many other carriers they package flights with hotels, tours or car rental.

Virgin airlines fly to all capital cities in the country and to various destinations that attract many holiday makers, such as:

  • Ayers Rock (Uluru) in the Red Centre,    
  • Hamilton Island, or Hervey Bay on the east coast,    
  • Broome, or Kununurra on the west coast,
  • Cocos Islands in the Indian ocean.

Like Jetstar Airlines or Tiger Airways, the Virgin airline is low cost and can offer you a cheap internal flight in Australia.

You can also go overseas to New Zealand, various exotic islands in the Pacific, and tourist destinations in Asia.

Virgin airlines will fly you even further away: to UK, North America, South Africa. So, for these routes, they are an alternative to the Qantas Airlines.

Virgin Blue is Now Virgin Australia

As of May 2011. Virgin Blue Australia dropped the Blue in its name and renamed to Virgin Australia.

And it is now after the more profitable business passengers rather than the leisure tourists. It is trying to offer more choice, better seating in both business and economy and a nicer experience.

Let's see what travellers will say.

Booking a Cheap Flight in Australia

Book online to make the most of Virgin fares  - it can be cheaper than going to a travel agent or even phoning the airline. And when you book online you can do it whenever you want and wherever you are, from your home computer or from your mobile phone.

Check the website of Virgin Australia ( - there are times when they have happy hour sales, where your dollars can go a bit further. But you need to check frequently as not all sales may suit your destinations of choice.

Or if your goal is to see our tourist attractions, book a Virgin Blue airpass. It allows flying from 3 to 8 destinations in Australia. You must have international airline tickets to Australia from Asia, Europe or anywhere else (and not necessarily with Virgin) and then book online a minimum of 3 and maximum of 8 internal flights. Though you have to plan in advance and know what you want to visit as you can't make your booking if you have already touched down in Australia.

If you are more fussy, and comfort is very important to you, try their premium economy program. It comes with better seats and extra legroom, no fees for changing your mind about the flight and more checked baggage. And a cheaper price than for business seats.
