Virgin Australia Baggage Deal

From 19 August 2021, Virgin Australia introduced brand new economy fares including Economy Lite, Economy Choice and Economy Flex, each of which will offer different booking options giving travellers choice based on their needs.

Travellers will continue to receive 23 kilograms of checked baggage and seat selection when they book an Economy Choice or Economy Flex fare. Economy Lite seat-only fare will give travellers the option to remove the unwanted cost of checked baggage from their ticket price.

As a proud supporter of the Australian music industry, Virgin Australia are pleased to advise they will continue to offer complimentary Musicians baggage allowance of 3 pieces of checked luggage at 23kg per piece on Economy Choice, Economy Flex and Business fares when travelling domestically on Virgin Australia.

As the Economy Lite fare is a seat only product, from 1 October 2021 complimentary baggage allowance will not be applicable to bookings where Economy Lite has been purchased.
