Cheap flights from Adelaide

Being so central, flights to any coast in Australia can be very affordable (oh, and international flights too!).

Last updated:

Adelaide is often overlooked when it comes to flights but its central location gives Adelaidians a chance to explore their own country at budget prices.

While international destinations aren’t quite as cheap, they’re still affordable with direct flights to Bali, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur available.
