Direct flights to Hainan Island from $215 return
Full service flights to China for less than the cost of flying domestic.
Who needs Hawaii when you can hightail it to the Hawaii of China AKA Hainan Island for less than half the cost? Not us!
The airline to thank for this amazing deal is Hainan Airlines. Ranked 9th in the world at last year's Skytrax Airline Awards, it's a 5-star carrier renowned for coupling low-cost flights into China with high quality, in-flight service.
At just $215 return there's every reason to love and no reason to hate this sale.
Departures set off from Sydney and fly direct to Haikou on Hainan Island. You'll be travelling between April and June, which is the Chinese spring and summer. That might sound good so far but summer is typhoon season in Hainan, so it's best to opt for April before the heavy rains of May and June settle in.
There's no end date to this sale, though at these prices we're anticipating they won't stick around for long.
To book: You can browse for them on Skyscanner online as well as search for other routes.
How good are these fares?
As mentioned above, Hainan Airlines has a bit of a reputation for offering budget-priced flights with a 5-star full service name tag though more often than not flights sit more comfortably around the $300 mark. At closer to $200, this sale is practically unheard of.
Compared to flights to Hawaii they cost almost half of what you'd pay to fly to Honolulu on budget and $700+ cheaper than if you'd flown to Honolulu and back on a full service carrier like Hawaiian Airlines.
