How good are these AirAsia South Korean sale fares?

  • Price: Good. Flights to Korea for under $850 return is a good deal according to Skyscanner (see below). Despite this sale being miles below the average, it still doesn't quite live up to $179 ($358 return) flights that Jetstar recently offered to South Korea. To be fair, those were Perth flights only.
  • Airline: Great. AirAsia is the best budget carrier in the world according to Skytrax. Being a budget carrier though, these are seat-only fares. To include checked luggage, meals and in-flight entertainment you will have to pay extra.
  • Travel time: Good. These flights aren't direct and include a stopover in Kuala Lumpur which may not be ideal for your travel schedule.
  • Weather: This sale features flights in summer (May-August) and winter (January-February) both of which are low seasons. If we had to choose one, we'd opt for summer where temperatures can reach 30°C which is akin to an Australian summer – so we're quite used to it. Winters can drop to -7°C which isn't pleasant unless you're arriving for the snow.
