Virgin Blue offers special fares on Hervey Bay - Sydney route

Travel News Asia 1 September 2004

Less than a week after confirming it will begin flights between Hervey Bay and Sydney, Virgin Blue has announced a special wow sale fare for the new route.

The A$79 one-way fare is up for grabs from now until 12 September 2004 and is for travel from 29 July to 31 August 2005.

The low fare airline has committed to starting services into the Fraser Coast region following the completion of the airport upgrade, which includes lengthening and strengthening the runway to allow for a 737 jet aircraft to fly in and out. Work is expected to be finished by July next year and Virgin Blue has set July 29 as its first ever flight into Hervey Bay.

Virgin Blue will operate its direct flight four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and will also offer convenient connecting flights from Hervey Bay to other southern ports including Adelaide from A$169 one-way on the net and Melbourne from A$149 one-way on the net.

Once the Hervey Bay-Sydney A$79 sale fare has finished, everyday low fares will start from A$99 one-way on the net.

Spokesperson Amanda Bolger said, We very much look forward to bringing the people of Hervey Bay and the Fraser Coast region a new airline option, more tourists and more opportunities to have the secrets of this stunning region made accessible and affordable for the world to see.
