Full-service fares to Shanghai or Beijing for just over $500 return.

You won't be short on options to get to China today with Qantas and Singapore Airlines both running flight sales to Shanghai and Beijing.

Flights to both destinations start from $501 return, when taking off from Brisbane.

The next best fare comes off the Melbourne to Beijing route being $509 return. From there, Sydney to Beijing flights start from $539 return and Sydney to Shanghai journeys from $548 return.

Travel is between March and June 2018 with certain routes, including Easter long holiday weekend dates, enabling you to take that four-day weekend without dipping into any precious annual leave.

Flights are on sale until sold out and can be booked now through I Want That Flight.

How good are these fares?

Sale flights to China on both airlines aren't a rare event. Prices to Beijing and Shanghai can drop as low as $340 return when travelling on rival airline Hainan Airlines. Singapore Airlines and Qantas tend not to drop their fares that low, preferring to sit in the mid $400s to the mid-$500s for return fares, making this a well-priced sale.

How good are these travel dates?

April, May and June are regarded as some of the best months to visit China for weather and price as days are cool and it's low season. Certain routes in this sale also include peak Easter long weekend dates, making them an exceptional find if you can snap up those tickets for peak season flights at low-season prices.
