Followed by the one from Virgin Blue:


200,000 SEATS ON SALE NOW AT $29*

Virgin Blue has been the tried and tested low fare airline for the past three years. We welcome the competition, but as we’re sure they will discover, taking off in Australia takes more than low fares. It takes a great network, new planes and a vibrant crew. Thanks for supporting the airline that supports everyday Australians. Without you, we couldn’t keep the air fair.
