The ongoing sale to Australia has expanded again, giving you another chance to visit The Lucky Country. Sydney has the most opportunity this time around, with some additional options to Brisbane and Melbourne. Airlines are varied, with American Airlines & Qantas for Oneworld, and United for Star Alliance providing fares. There are fewer dates available than the previous “nationwide” sale, and while there are plenty of spring/fall options, only some early June/late August dates are on sale in the summer. I tested the following departures to Sydney, but there may be more cities with deals.

  • Los Angeles from $529
  • Seattle from $623
  • Atlanta from $623
  • Portland from $623
  • Detroit from $625
  • Minneapolis from $628
  • Phoenix from $673
  • Charlotte from $676
  • Miami from $678
  • Philadelphia from $678
  • Denver from $720
  • San Francisco from $744

All fares are main cabin economy, providing seat selection and checked bags. Layovers vary by number and length so make sure to note any stops required. Also, make sure to apply for your Australian Electronic Travel Authorization (E-Visa, similar to the coming requirement for travel to Europe) before you go to ensure you’re allowed to board your flight. Sale fares from all but L.A. have generally come and gone quickly this year, so plan now if you want to take advantage of these deals.
