Cheap flights to China starting from as little as $275 return
All-inclusive, one-stop flights from Australia to Beijing flying China Southern.
Last week, Chinese New Year brought with it a slew of flight sales to the Asian nation with Cathay Pacific slashing the cost of dozens of routes to under $900 return and Qantas following suit halving that number again to offer $450 return flights to Asia.
If you thought that was the best airlines could do in celebration of the New Year, think again.
Not to be outdone, China Southern has launched its own sale with flights to China starting from as little as $275 return. This low price is for its Sydney to Beijing route and for select flight dates from 21 February 2017 to 24 April 2017. Sure, they're last-minute flight options, but book the April dates and you'll also be arriving during one of the best times to visit China as the weather starts to cool that month.
Other flights on sale with China Southern include: Melbourne to Beijing from $381 return and Brisbane to Beijing from $410 return. However, there are slightly cheaper fares available on these routes with alternate airlines such as AirAsia (see table below).
Want to fly to another Chinese destination? China Southern is also offering flights from Sydney to Changsha in China's Hunan province from $482.04 return and Melbourne to Harbin in the northern province of Heilongjiang from $468.45 return.
All flights include checked baggage from 20kg (premium economy and economy class) and food and beverages. A stopover at Guangzhou Airport is also included in these flights.
These sale flights aren't part of a particular promotion and are available until sold out.
