How much you can expect to pay for cheap flights to Asia

Here's what's considered to be a good deal compared to the average cost of a flight from Australia to Asia.

How long does it take to fly to Asia from Australia?

It can take just a few hours from the Northern Territory Western Australia, or five hours or more if you're coming from elsewhere in Australia. However, the flight time really depends where in Australia you're flying from and where in Asia you're flying to.

As an example, see some approximate flight times to Bali from major Australian cities:

  • From Sydney: Approximately 5 hrs 40 mins + when you fly direct to Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar)
  • From Melbourne: Approximately 5 hrs 25 mins + when you fly direct to Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar)
  • From Perth: Approximately 3 hrs 40 mins + when you fly direct to Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar)
  • From Brisbane: Approximately 5 hrs 25 mins + when you fly direct to Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar)

Which airlines fly to Asia from Australia?

Some airlines that offer direct flights to Asia from Australia include:

  • AirAsia
  • Jetstar
  • Qantas
  • Scoot
  • Singapore Airlines

When's the best time to book Christmas flights to Asia?

This depends on the destination you are flying to and from, but generally you can get a good deal three to six months prior to the trip.

If you are travelling to Bali from Sydney, you'll score the biggest savings (up to 6%) when you book a Christmas flight in June.

If you fly from Melbourne, discounts are as high as 8%.

For a flight to Singapore, reservations in June and July get you up to 10% discounts from both Sydney and Melbourne.

According to AirAsia, Jetstar and Scoot all offer direct and indirect flights from across Australia to popular Asian cities. You can find unbelievable flight deals with these airlines, but keep in mind that their lead-in fares are for seats only, so you’ll pay extra for any checked luggage, meals and entertainment. Full-service airlines, including Qantas and Asian national carriers include the above in their fares, which are often very competitive, especially when there’s a sale on.

  • The most common transit airports in Asia are Singapore (SIN), Bangkok (BKK) and Kuala Lumpur (KUL). If you have a stopover of a few hours, these airports have shower facilities, massage services and plenty of eateries so you can freshen up. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even arrange a tour of the local city with pick-up and drop-off from the airport. Singapore Changi, Tokyo Narita and Taoyuan International Airports are three that offer them for free.
