AirAsia celebrates Avalon Airport launch with $99 flights to Asia

First flights take off from 4 December. Have you got your ticket yet?

Earlier in the year, Avalon Airport and AirAsia announced they would be teaming up to offer the first ever international flights out of Melbourne's second airport, Avalon.

Now, tickets for first flights are finally out and to celebrate they are on sale for as little as $99 each way.

These are to AirAsia's home city Kuala Lumpur and, to be perfectly frank, are actually on sale for $12 each way with airport taxes coming in at $87. Put the two together and you get your flight fare.

Whichever way you look at it, it is super cheap and is definitely not one to be missed.

The Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur route will operate twice daily on AirAsia's long haul carrier AirAsia X on an A330-300 aircraft. While it's the focus flight of this launch, it isn't the only one from Avalon Airport on sale. Direct flights from Melbourne (Avalon) to Bangkok are also available from $154 each way while over 70 indirect flights via Kuala Lumpur are also available to snap up for cheap. This includes Melbourne to Singapore from $140, Melbourne to Phuket from $147, Melbourne to Male (Maldives) from $201 and Melbourne to Tokyo from $249, to name a few.

Again all these fares are one-way with returns costing double.

Travel is open across a more-than-generous period, ranging from 4 December 2018 to 13 August 2019. This includes peak season dates such as Christmas, though these are limited so you may need to be flexible with your dates around high-season to keep to your intended budget.

This sale ends 15 July unless sold out prior. You can browse for and book these flights through Flight Finder here.


How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. We honestly have never seen flights from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur this low.
  • Airline: Budget. AirAsia is a low cost carrier and fares only include seats. Any checked-in luggage, in-flight meals or entertainment required will incur a fee.
  • Travel time: Great. Flights are direct to Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, and Fly-Thru fares are well-timed for short connections in Kuala Lumpur to other AirAsia destinations.
  • Weather: Great. With almost a year's worth of travel dates at your fingertips you can fly in almost any season you'd prefer. Check our Best Time guide before you book to ensure you're travelling in the best weather conditions for your destination.
