Virgin Australia launches Gold Coast-Bali flights, resumes South Pacific services

Virgin Australia is breaking new ground as the first Australian carrier to offer direct flights between the Gold Coast and Bali, connecting two top surfing and holiday destinations starting from next year.

Mark your calendars for 29 March 2023, because that’s when the daily services between Gold Coast Airport’s new International Terminal and Bali will begin.

With more than 2,200 seats available each week, you can already book your ticket starting today.

The announcement comes as Virgin prepares to restart flights to Bali from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane this week.

Virgin Australia’s Short Haul International operations are growing, with plans to resume services to Vanuatu and Samoa alongside its services to Fiji, Bali, and Queenstown, New Zealand.

Direct flights from Brisbane to Port Vila, Vanuatu, will kick off on 10 March 2023, with up to five flights a week.

Services to Apia, Samoa, will start from Sydney on 21 March 2023, with up to three flights per week, and from Brisbane on 23 March 2023, with up to two flights per week.

This expansion means that holidaymakers now have a wider choice of Pacific Island destinations to explore. Plus, those eager to reconnect with friends and family in Samoa and Vanuatu can finally do so as these destinations open to international travel post-COVID-19.

To celebrate these new routes, Virgin Australia has introduced its Set Your Sights Overseas sale.

You can enjoy discounts of up to 30% on over 70,000 seats across all the airline’s Short Haul International routes, including the ones announced today.

And for you Velocity Frequent Flyer members, there’s a mega bonus: From 15 to 24 June 2022, you’ll get an extra 2,000 Velocity Points when you book Virgin Australia flights between Bali, Fiji, New Zealand, Vanuatu, Samoa, and Australia, for travel until 11 May 2023.
