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
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.”
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.
