Discover dozens of destinations worldwide, now on sale with Cathay.

5-star airline Cathay Pacific has taken the lead on New Year's flight sales, launching its stunner earlier this week with discounted flights to Asia, Europe, North America and the Middle East (Israel).

Flights to Hong Kong start from $596 return on departures from Melbourne, with flights to Beijing not far behind starting from $681 return when taking off from Perth. All are companion fares where two or more people must be booked together on the same flight – so you'd best round up the gang while catching up over the Christmas break to secure your spot at the right price.

If you'd prefer to fly solo, economy class fares are also available, though at a slightly higher price.

Other standout lead-in fares are:

  • Perth-Cebu from $713
  • Adelaide-London from $1,216
  • Perth-Paris from $1,018
  • Melbourne-New York from $1,261
  • Melbourne-Vancouver from $1,227

These fares are available on departures from 8 January - 31 May 2018, which is ideal for Aussies wishing to make the most of the end of the school holidays or to travel into Asia in time for Chinese New Year.

For those who prefer to live the luxe life, premium economy fares are also available on journeys to Europe and North America. Sample fares in this cabin include Sydney to Amsterdam from $3,030 and Perth to New York from $3,498 return.

This sale ends 23:39 AEDT 8 January 2018, unless seats sell out prior.

Avoid FOMO now by making your booking through Cathay Pacific.

Better yet, you can also add a stopover in Hong Kong and take in two cities on your holiday using Cathay Pacific's range of free and discounted tours for travellers in Hong Kong. These are valid for passengers with a layover between as little as 6 hours and as long as 3 days.
