Frequently asked questions about Black Friday flight deals

When do the Black Friday and Cyber Monday flight deals start?

In 2020, Black Friday falls on 27 November, with most sales continuing on through the weekend until Cyber Monday, which is on 30 November.

While every brand's sale is available for different lengths of time, we note on every deal we share with you the date the offer ends. If the deal is still on our page, that means it's still available to be booked. But if you're after specific travel dates, the sooner you get in the better! Peak season dates, weekends and school holiday dates, if available, often sell out quick.

How do I get the best Black Friday flight deals?

  • Be flexible: Often the lowest prices are available on days where airlines need to fill their planes, and this may mean leaving mid-week or during the low season. If you're happy to travel off-peak (which also means fewer crowds at the destination and an emptier flight - hello, empty seat next to you!) you can really score a deal.
  • Go wherever the sales take you: If you have a specific destination in mind, you're more likely to be disappointed. Instead, approach the sale with a broader holiday plan. You're more likely to find a deal to a non-specific beach destination than to a specific South Pacific island.
  • Start your search at midnight: Many sales launch as soon as the clock strikes midnight on 27 November, so we'd recommend being ready to book as early in the day as possible before the best deals sell out.
  • Forego baggage and in-flight meals: While this one's to be said for any flight sale, if you've found a deal on a budget airline, try and get all of your belongings into a carry-on or bring your own snacks for the flight. Depending on the airline and destination, these extra fees can really add a lot to your fare.
  • Set up a price alert: If your heart is set on a specific destination, set up a price alert for your route. Sites like Kayak and Skyscanner both offer this service. You'll get an email alert if the price of flights on your preferred route drop

Which companies are offering Black Friday flight deals?

While the offers available change every year, we've seen discounted flights on Black Friday from the following airlines and online travel agencies in the past:

  • Flight Centre:This Australian travel agency pulls together some of the best deals on the web. It's been known to jump the gun early and drop a Red Thursday sale the day before. In 2018 Flight Centre's sale included $179 return flights to Bali. Catch all the latest as they land here.
  • Virgin Australia: Fly full-service and earn Velocity Points for a fraction of the price? Yes, please. Virgin Australia tends to choose one destination as the focus of its Black Friday sale. In 2018 it was the USA with flights to Los Angeles from $1,065 return.
  • Jetstar: Always on the search for an excuse to launch a sale, Jetstar has offered $39 domestic fares, $99 international flights and return for free deals over Black Friday.
  • Qantas: Australia's national carrier has a tendency to offer discounts on its online shop, rather than on flights. If you are looking for Qantas fares however check out online travel agencies such as Flight Centre and Aunt Betty. They sometimes sell discounted Qantas flights during Black Friday.
  • Air New Zealand: New Zealand's national carrier has offered everything from discounted flights to New Zealand to sale fares to the USA over Black Friday.
  • Emirates: Previous years have seen Emirates bring out discounted flights to Dubai and Europe from as low as $1,059 return.
  • Qatar: Cheap European flights on a 5-star airline is the name of Qatar's game over Black Friday. We've seen the airline offer 10% off flights across its entire network in previous Black Friday sales.

Which destinations can I get cheap Black Friday flights to?

We've seen discounted flights to destinations across Australia with Jetstar, Virgin Australia and Qantas in previous Black Friday sales.International destinations like New Zealand, Hawaii, Bali, Thailand, the UK, Europe and the USA are often featured in the sales lists, too. With COVID-19 still causing an impact on international travel, we expect this year's Black Friday flight sales to be exclusive to domestic airfares.
