You can fly from Calgary to Australia for under $670 roundtrip this year
The folks over at NextDeparture want to make sure you get a chance to check out Australia and they’re making sure you can do it without breaking the bank.
Qantas Airways have dropped their Australian flights from Calgary to Melbourne for $652 and to Sydney for $669, roundtrip, tax in. The website also says that flights to Brisbane should be available for similar pricing.
Flights have one or two connections each way. Some flights require a lengthy layover (10+ hours) during the day in Los Angeles and total travel time is close to 20 hours but come on, it’s Australia…for less than a peak ticket to Toronto!
Qantas fares include two checked baggage and one carry-on.
Google Flights show the same flight path for $930 to upwards of $1,000 so you’d best get booking if you’re in the mood to go “down under.”
