V Australia launches Special One-Way Fares to Los Angeles

V Australia has launched special one-way fares on  tickets between Australia and Los Angeles.

 While one-way fares are not new, V Australia is one of the first to offer one-way fares across all of its fare brackets to the US, including its lowest lead-in fares, offering one-way international economy tickets from just A$579.

Virgin Blue Group Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said, “Nine years ago when Virgin Blue entered the market we virtually invented the concept of affordable, unrestricted one-way domestic fares by removing the archaic ‘advanced purchase conditions’ and minimum stay requirements then associated with expensive one-way fares.

“The biggest joke in the industry was that for the cheapest and least-restrictive one-way fare, travellers had to purchase a return fare and throw away the return portion. This was obviously good for the airlines, but not so for travellers and Virgin Blue changed all that and now we’re doing the same for trans-Pacific travel on V Australia.”

Availability of more affordable one-way fares is good news for students, backpackers, expats and those on working holidays who may not necessarily have a firm return date.

If travellers are in doubt about their travel plans, buying a one-way fare will also negate any penalty fees that usually apply to the lower fare brackets if changes are made to a return flight after the booking is confirmed.
