5-star flights to Paris over summer from $931 return

Or fly over Christmas from $1,030 return.

Peak season flights to Paris like these don't come often, but when they do you can bet your bottom dollar that finder.com.au will be onto them like a hawk.

We're talking summer flights to the city of lights from just $931 return, flying with 5-star carrier Cathay Pacific and reaping all its benefits including 30kg of luggage, in-flight meals and entertainment, and the ability to rack up stacks of frequent flyer points.

The cheapest fares are for Perth to Paris flights between 1 March and 28 November, taking in all those holiday dates as well as peak July and August summer dates.

For everyone else, you can get to Paris during these dates departing Cairns from $936, Adelaide from $937, Sydney from $955 and Brisbane from $956.

The biggest catch is that these are Blue Ticket fares with STA Travel, the specialists in student and youth travel. Being Blue Ticket, they're only available for full-time students and youths under 30. For those outside that window, STA Travel can also offer you flights from $892 on the lesser star airline, Air China, and for dates until 20 June only. This still gets you there in time for the warm weather – so it's not a bad deal at all!

As for those Christmas dates? STA Travel has those for students and youths, too. Starting from $1,030 return on Cathay Pacific when taking off from Perth, you can travel all the way up to 31 December at this price. Other Christmas fares include Adelaide to Paris from $1,035, Cairns to Paris from $1,120 and Sydney to Paris from $1,125 return.

Flights until 28 November are on sale until 26 March while flights until 31 December are on sale until 18 April.

How good are these flights?

Summer peak season flights purchased this late in the game can run well into the $1,000s, so nabbing them at off-peak prices on a 5-star carrier is a rarity indeed. Yes, you do need to meet the requirements of either being a full-time student or under 30, but if you do fulfil these criteria then you're sitting pretty.

The same goes for Christmas flights. Even though we're still 9 months away, fares are on the rise and aren't likely to fall too far unless an airline is struggling to sell seats. We did a quick search through Skyscanner to see how these fares compare with other 4 and 5 star airlines and the savings are already looking like $700+.
