Virgin Australia (VA) launches fare families on Amadeus

Published on: May 08 2018 by Stuart Oxby

Amadeus are pleased to announce that with immediate effect Virgin Australia (VA) have implemented airline fare families on Amadeus.

Each fare family will offer a range of booking classes, fares and services grouped into branded products e.g. the ‘Getaway’ fare family on the Melbourne to Sydney route includes standard economy seat selection, 23kg hold baggage, a meal, non-alcoholic drink and in- flight entertainment but does not include a refund before departure and changes before departure are at a charge. In contrast the ‘Freedom’ fare family offers the above but changes before departure do not have a charge and refunds before departure are permitted at a charge. As an agent you will be able to offer the best fare family to suit each individual customer’s needs.

Depending on the route flown, the range of fare families offered may include the following fare family options – Getaway (GW), Elevate (EV), Freedom (FD), Premium Saver (PS), Premium (PF), Business Saver (BS) and Business (BU).

These fare families will be available on a range of selected routes including domestic Australian sectors, Trans-Tasman routes, short-haul routes and long-haul routes so whether your passengers are looking at Cairns to Sydney, Melbourne to Auckland, Perth to Christmas Island or Sydney to Los Angeles there will be a fare family suited to them.

For more information about how to book Virgin Australia fare families then please see the Virgin Australia fare family user guide which will shortly be made available in the Amadeus Service Hub (ASH).
