Virgin Australia announce new travel deals for musicians
The Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN) has announced an enhancement of the special Virgin Australia travel offering to members of the national AMIN network of organisations including a wider selection of discounted Virgin Australia flights and greater flexibility around changes to flight bookings.
Discounted Virgin Australia fares are available now through the Travel Beyond Group booking portal and include up to 7 per cent discounts on all domestic fares – excluding sale fares*. AMIN members travelling on Virgin Australia flights within Australia will also be able to make one free date change to their booking.^
The deal also supports international travel with discounts up to 15 per cent (depending on destination) to international destinations including Los Angeles, New Zealand and Virgin Australia short haul destinations across Asia and the South Pacific*. AMIN members also have access to specialist ‘entertainment fares’ for Premium Economy and Business Class, which include even larger discounts to selected key music destinations including Los Angeles and New York. Please note discounts for domestic and international flights are not applicable to sale fares. These international discounts are limited to Virgin Australia operated flights and not partner airlines.
Under the arrangement, all AMIN members will also have access to Virgin Australia’s generous musicians baggage allowance for domestic flights, and to discounted membership of the Virgin Australia Lounge.~
The Travel Beyond Group booking portal provides a complete travel solution and, under this AMIN offering, includes discounts and special conditions for a range of car hire and hotel companies.
Please contact your state or territory music industry organisation for more information.
