After months of speculation, Virgin Australia has announced that Melbourne and Sydney lounges will open on 15 December. As we reported a few weeks back, other Lounges on the Virgin Australia network will soon follow, however reopening dates are yet to be confirmed.
With Virgin Australia’s lounge network shuttered since March, this news will be welcome for both leisure and business travellers zipping between Sydney and Melbourne, and to Queensland.
It comes as Virgin Australia flights from Victoria and New South Wales to Queensland hit near capacity today, with the Sunshine State throwing open its borders to Victoria and all of New South Wales for the first time in months.
Virgin Australia expects it will reach 60% of prior year domestic capacity by January 2021. To give customers added confidence when booking, Virgin Australia is waiving applicable change fees and allowing unlimited booking changes for reservations with travel between now and 31 January 2021.
The airline will further extend booking flexibility until 31 March 2021 should a customer’s travel plans be impacted by COVID-19. More information here.
