Asia flights from $396 return on Singapore Airlines
Travel on a 5-star airline at a budget price.
Singapore Airlines has launched a sale on flights throughout Asia that's enough to rival even its own budget airline, Scoot.
It features fares from just $396 return when travelling between Darwin and Singapore. Though there are more destinations and savings to be had besides that.
Think Melbourne to Beijing from $573, Sydney to Tokyo from $723 and Brisbane to Hong Kong from $645 return for starters. Other destinations you can fly to include Manila, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, Phuket and Tokyo.
For those heading further afield, Singapore Airlines has also slashed the dollars on certain European routes with Darwin to Paris flights starting from $1,158 and Melbourne to London from $1,255 return.
Travel is available from April-June 2018 throughout Asia with the European routes also including dates in October and November.
This promotion ends 13 February 2018. See Flight Centre for full details and to make your booking.
How good are these fares?
With a starting price under $400 return on a full-service 5-star airline, you're getting a bargain for almost the price of flying with a budget airline.
While Singapore's low-cost carrier Scoot doesn't fly out of Darwin, at the time of writing it is advertising fares to Singapore from Perth from $139 each way for similar dates. That's $278 return. Throw in luggage, meals and in-flight entertainment through its FlyBagEat upgrade and standard seat selection you're now at $390 – just $6 more than Singapore Airlines.
Other routes through Asia come up on-par with previous Singapore Airlines sales, giving you that bargain-edge with quality service.
For its European routes though, it might be better to hold off for the last minute sales as the airline has been known to offer flights into Europe for as little as $849 return.
