How good is this Air Asia sale?

AirAsia's BIG sale is famous for its unbeatable prices.

In the past it would feature international flights for under $100.

These days you're more likely to see starting fares around $200. In fact, the airline's last notable sale was in August where it took 20% off all seats departing Australia to bring flights out of Perth down to $209 and out of Sydney to $312 each way.

With similarly priced fares, it's doubtful you'll get anything else this cheap on AirAsia for a while.

Want a little more luxury? Premium flatbeds are also on sale starting from $599 each way, giving you a good night's rest so you can wake up fresh in a new country.

This AirAsia sale ends on 25 September 2022, unless sold out.
