Asia insider flight tips

  • The list of direct flights from Australia to Asia is forever growing. You can currently fly non-stop from Australia to Bali, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines. A stopover is required to reach destinations such as Cambodia, Japan, Nepal, and countries further afield like India.
  • Budget airlines AirAsia, Jetstar, Scoot and Tigerair all offer direct and indirect flights from across Australia to popular Asian cities. You can find unbelievable flight deals with these airlines but keep in mind that their lead-in fares are for seats only, so you’ll pay extra for any checked luggage, meals and entertainment. Full-service airlines, including Qantas and Asian national carriers include the above in their fares, which are often very competitive, especially when there’s a sale on.
  • The most common transit airports in Asia are Singapore (SIN), Bangkok (BKK) and Kuala Lumpur (KUL). If you have a stopover of a few hours, these airports have shower facilities, massage services and plenty of eateries so you can freshen up. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even arrange a tour of the local city with pick-up and drop-off from the airport. Singapore Changi, Tokyo Narita and Taoyuan International Airports are three that offer them for free.

How to get from the airport

Airport transfer services provided by your hotel or resort are usually reasonably priced and worthwhile. Airports throughout Asia are notorious for touts offering you a cheap ride to your hotel, but you should ignore them. They can overcharge you and even take you to a hotel with a similar name to the one you’ve given them. Often, they will say the hotel you are looking for is full or has closed down. Airport arrival halls will have desks where you can book private or shared shuttle and taxi transfers. If you don’t have a lot of luggage, then it is worth researching the local public transport options from the airport.

You can also find yourself a taxi outside the arrivals terminal. If you are going to do this, it’s best to go straight to a taxi driver and ignore anyone who tries to stop you on the way. Show the driver the name and address of where you want to go and agree on a price before you get in the cab. Major car rental companies operate from most Asian airports, just be aware that driving in most Asian cities is not for the faint-hearted and you should be fully insured! The low-cost airlines already mentioned also operate cheap flights within Asia.
