Cheap Australia business fares

  • Joe

    Is anyone aware of any ongoing deals to Australia? I need to book some flights soon. I took a look via Oslo etc but not sure if there is something on I might be missing


    You haven’t said when you’re looking to travel. There will be times of the year when a cheap fare is impossible. Generally premium cabins are flying very full this year owing to pent-up demand and people using vouchers from trips that were deferred due to the pandemic. Cash fares are very high, higher than most savvy travellers are willing to pay but as there are only a handful of seats left, the airlines are holding out for those that will.


    I am hoping for a sale, but in the meantime I have booked Malaysian Economy Flex from Heathrow. I can cancel it for a full refund if necessary.

    I’ve had a look on Google flights and so far the “best” I could see was CDG-BKK for £1200. However it’s still quite a distance from BKK


    There were some good prices for Munich-Brisbane with EVA recently but it depends what dates you are looking at. Same for TLL-BKK and also BUD-HKG if you are trying to get Business to some part of Asia at least.

    This forum on Flyertalk is pretty good if you are looking for deals.


    @Joe have you looked at a double open jaw from nordics? Cheaper than return or single open jaw for some reason and ADL or BNE cheaper. Just under £3k (inc fx fees) business with QR ARN-SYD/MEL-CPH which currently I think is quite reasonable plus earns lots of Avios/TP.


    Thanks for the replies. For more detail I need to go the SYD for around a week, leaving on about the 31st of October and coming back on the evening of the 4th or in the day on the 5th (to LON). I am pretty flexible with how I go. Essentially my company has a travel policy of prem econ and that’s the price they will accept. If I can find a business routing which come out about that price then I can book. The prem econ ticket is between £3900 and £4400 – so that’s my budget.


    Don’t know whether this would help you at all, but I was recently able to book an open jaw LHR-SIN and BKK-LHR on Finnair in November for £2500 (in Business). That would leave you £1900 to separately book SIN-SYD-BKK if you’re comfortable doing it on separate tickets (or spending a day or two in each city as contingency!) for some reason the open jaw was coming out cheaper than a simple return to either city. Looked like there were some even cheaper days in October. YMMV etc 😉


    There was some good fares from Madrid with *A to Sydney and Melbourne, around 2.5k euros. But they were with two stops, so you would need another one to Madrid.
    In your dates I can see 3k with Vietnam Airlines from Madrid, although booking with OTAs.


    @gtellez what were the stops? just taking a look


    I think for the *A fares they were first in Munich/Frankfurt and then in Singapore. For the Vietnam Airlines fare the first one in Paris and the second in Ho Chi Min
