Virgin Australia has launched its first sale of the year, offering half a million fares for as low as $49.

In a move the airline hopes will inspire Australians to “trade work meetings for holidays,” hundreds of thousands of domestic and international seats are now on sale, for travel between January 29 and late November.

The cheapest flight is a one-way economy lite trip from Sydney to Ballina (Byron Bay), which will set travellers back just $49.
