V Australia lowered fares on one-way tickets between Australia and Los Angeles yesterday, becoming one of the first airlines to offer one-way fares across all of its fare brackets to the U.S. This includes its lowest lead-in fares, with one-way International Economy tickets from $579, approximately 70 percent lower than the lowest one-way fare currently offered by competitor airlines.
Currently, transpacific one-way fares on other carriers are only available in the higher fare brackets.
Buying a one-way fare will negate any penalty fees that usually apply to the lower fare brackets if changes are made to a return flight after the booking is confirmed.
One-way fares from Australia to LAX are only available for purchase online at www.vaustralia.com.au and do not include through fares via Los Angeles to other U.S. destinations as operated by V Australia’s code-share partners.
One-way fares from Los Angeles to Australia are only available for purchase online at www.vaustralia.com and travellers headed down-under are also able to purchase one-way ‘through fares’ from L.A. to Sydney or Brisbane and onwards throughout Australia on Virgin Blue’s extensive flight network.
