As expected, Virgin Australia has followed suit and offering free cancellations.
Virgin is allowing cancellations for travel up to 30/6 whereas QANTAS/Jetstar is till 31/5.
Virgin Australia has announced a similar policy for its customers.
“We are aware of new travel restrictions announced by the Australian Government and are assessing our response,” the airline said.
“We understand these restrictions may affect guests’ travel plans. Virgin Australia guests with international bookings from now until 30 June 2020, who no longer want to travel, have the option to change their flight to a later date and/or to a different destination, without incurring a change fee.
“They’ll just need to cover the difference if the value of the new fare is greater than the original. If they want to cancel their flight, they are eligible to receive credit to a Travel Bank with no cancellation fee.”
