Does anyone know when VA will start selling fares on MEL-DPS direct flights? I know flights start March 2020.
On sale as of yesterday I think.

Fares of $499 rtn mentioned but couldn't find anything like that for non school holiday dates later next year...more like $700+.

Yep, been on sale for a couple of weeks now. Schedule is:
VA025 MEL1645 – 2110DPS 737-800
VA026 DPS2320 – 0655+1MEL 737-800

Flights start 29 March 2020. On the same date, VA will reduce SYD-AKL from 19x weekly to 14x weekly. Presumably this is where the aircraft for the 5x weekly MEL-DPS flights is coming from. Makes sense given trans-Tasman has been a bloodbath lately.

Judging from my recent searches, the flights are well subscribed too.

A reminder that this thread is about what routes will be cut, not what routes are being added.

Please take discussion about VA adding routes elsewhere.

Bit interesting that it's mainly serviced by VARA.
Maybe due to the reduction of F100 frames.
Following up on the Alice Springs to Darwin Virgin cut, there's data (BITRE?) in this article which gives an indication why Virgin is ending flying the sector
