NT flight sale: Virgin Australia releases $129 sale flights to Alice Springs and Darwin

If you’ve ever wanted to see Uluru or the Top End, now is the time. 

Today Virgin Australia launched an epic Northern Territory sale with thousands of one-way Economy fares to Darwin and Alice Springs from as low as $129, for travel between 1 December 2021 and 23 June 2022.

The good news is the date range includes key dates within the school holidays and next year’s Bassinthegrass music festival (if you’re not familiar with it, it’s the NT’s biggest music festival and will land on 21 May next year – tickets to Bassinthegrass are on sale now here).

The sale fares are on sale now until midnight on November 19, or until sold out. 

If you’re feeling a bit iffy about booking flights due to Covid, the airline is offering booking flexibility to change or cancel to travel credit with no fees, available for travel up to 30 April 2022.

One-way Economy Lite fare highlights in both directions:

  • Adelaide – Darwin from $129
  • Melbourne – Darwin from $149
  • Perth – Darwin from $149
  • Adelaide – Alice Springs from $139 
  • Darwin – Sydney from $149
  • Canberra – Darwin from $199
  • Brisbane – Darwin from $159
  • Darwin – Hobart from $209
  • Darwin – Launceston from $209
  • Alice Springs – Melbourne from $189

All sale fares include Velocity Frequent Flyer Points and up to double Status Credits as part of the airline’s latest loyalty promotion.

“Virgin Australia is making it more affordable than ever for Aussie travelers to visit the Northern Territory, and we’re excited to launch today’s Seek adveNTure sale with flights to Alice Springs and Darwin from as low as $129, which is up to 30 percent off,” said a Virgin Australia spokesperson.

“We know the Seek adveNTure sale will really help to boost passenger numbers into the Territory, particularly from the southern states, as border restrictions ease. The economic injection from more visitors will help the many hundreds of local tourism operators bounce back from the pandemic over the next few months.”

“In a nod to our brand’s music roots, the sale also includes travel dates over the Bassinthegrass weekend in May next year, so music lovers can grab themselves a bargain airfare to Darwin to enjoy the NT’s biggest music festival, which is on sale now.”
