Flights of the Week by Travel Finder™

Peter Terlato 21 October 2016

A weekly round up of the best flight deals across the net.

From domestic journeys to round-the-world trips, we search everywhere online to give you the ultimate fares round-up. We can't guarantee the prices will stick, so if you're inspired, snap these fares up fast.

This week's best flight deals:


$120: Fly return to Kuala Lumpur

Budget carrier AirAsia has some of the cheapest international fares to Malaysia we've seen when you book through I Want That Flight.

The cheapest fares departing Australia are Perth to KL from $120 return.

Checked bags or in-flight meals can be added for an additional fee.

Dates: February-May 2016

We love these flights because:

  • Budget carriers, like AirAsia, save you money in the air so you can spend it when you land
  • Kuala Lumpur is the perfect jump-off point with discounted fares to countless Asian destinations
  • Temples, museums, towers, shopping, butterfly parks, local cuisine and culture


$478: Fly return to Hawaii

Low-cost carrier Jetstar is offering dirt cheap, direct return fares to the Aloha state.

These flights were found through I Want That Flight.

Checked bags or in-flight meals can be added for an additional fee.

Dates: January-September 2017

We love these flights because:

  • The state of Hawaii comprises eight main islands for visitors to explore and enjoy
  • Hawaii is unique in that it is the most isolated population centre anywhere on earth
  • Hawaii is the only American state to grow the world's favourite beverage, coffee


$35: Fly one-way around Australia

Tigerair this week launched its five day "Adventure Awaits" sale, offering cheap domestic trips across Australia.

Sample fares include Hobart to Melbourne from $35, Sydney to the Gold Coast from $39, Sydney to Melbourne from $49, Adelaide to Sydney from $69 and Perth to Sydney from $149.

Checked bags or in-flight meals can be added for an additional fee.

Dates: November-December 2016

We love these flights because:

  • Tigerair offers a no-frills service, so you literally pay for what you need and not for what you don't.
  • Discount airfare prices across Australia have been decreasing steadily over the last 12 months
  • Coming in to summer, these flights are a great excuse to experience new areas of Australia
