Virgin Australia will introduce a new Perth to Hobart and Adelaide to Hobart services with one-way promotional launch fares starting at just $149 and $49 respectively.

The Hobart – Adelaide service takes off October 22, 2021, and the Hobart-Perth service between October 29, 2021, and April 25, 2022.

The promotional seat sale starts at 7 am (AET) Tuesday, September 21, and will end midnight Sunday, September 26, 2021, or until sold out.

The special fares can be booked at and include double Status Credits as part of the Velocity Frequent Flyer Status Rewards Program announced last week.

Virgin Australia group chief strategy and transformation officer, Alistair Hartley said the announcement will reconnect more Australians in time for Christmas.

“Virgin Australia continues to look for new ways to expand our network schedule to create more travel opportunities for Australians where free movement across borders is permitted. That’s why we’re proud to announce the launch of services between Hobart and Perth in time for Christmas,” said Mr. Hartley.

“Over the past month, Virgin Australia has already announced two new Tasmanian services, so together that’s up to 18,000 more travelers who are able to explore the Apple Isle’s incredible tourist attractions and natural wonders, including Hobart’s MONA and the Salamanca markets and Launceston’s lavender estates and the seaside links of Australia’s premier golf destination, Barnbougle.

“Virgin Australia is now the only carrier to connect both Launceston and Hobart to five state capital cities including, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Mr. Hartley added that for added confidence when booking, the airline is also waiving applicable change fees and allowing unlimited changes for bookings for travel between now and February 28, 2022.

“Our customers can book with confidence knowing they can change their booking if they need to,” Mr Hartley said.

The promotional fares are subject to terms and conditions and restricted travel periods.
