The complete list of extra airline fees for Australian flights

Save time by comparing extra airline fees on domestic flights in Australia all in the one place.

While everyone loves bagging a bargain when it comes to plane tickets, extras like checked baggage, preferred seat selection and that wine you’ll drink just after take off can quickly make the cheap ticket double – or even triple – in price. To help save you some time and cash, we’ve come up with a handy guide that will show you what you can expect to pay for extra luxuries aboard domestic flights with the five main Australian carriers: Qantas, Virgin Australia, Jetstar, Tigerair and Rex.
