“With borders slowly reopening and more Australians excited to explore their own backyard, we’re making it easy for them to get to wherever they need to go, with our 20th birthday sale fares from just $69 including baggage and seat selection.

“We’re thrilled to include Victorians in our birthday sale and we remain hopeful that they’ll soon be able to travel more freely so we’ve included a host of great value fares to and from Melbourne with travel dates up until the end of March 2021.

“The aviation and tourism industries rely on a connected nation and we hope that borders continue to safely reopen and more Australians return to the skies,” the Virgin Australia spokesperson said.
