Extra seat for personal comfort

To make your flights as comfortable as possible, you can purchase an extra seat next to you in advance for personal comfort.

Virgin Australia offer seat width from approximately 17 inches (43cm) and a seat pitch from approximately 31 inches (75cm). A seat belt extension is provided by Virgin Australia when requested once onboard.

Virgin Australia does also offer Economy X or Business Class options to improve your travelling experience.

Extra seat for musical instruments

Large musical instruments such as a cello or guitar are accepted onboard, with the advance purchase of an additional seat, provided it does not exceed our maximum dimensions stated below:

  • Length: 63 inches (160cm)
  • Depth: 12 inches (30.5cm)

Please note musical instruments cannot be seated in an emergency exit row or in Business Class.

It’s recommended for the instrument to be appropriately stored in a hard cover case. Seatbelt extensions can be used to secure the instrument in place once onboard.

How to book

An extra seat can be booked via our Guest Contact Centre and we will be glad to assist you further. You will be able to earn Velocity Frequent Flyer points for the extra seat subject to Velocity Frequent Flyer terms and conditions.
