London IS calling and if you're the kind to jet-set on short notice then Cathay Pacific has the cheap fares to help you answer that red telephone box call.

The 5-star carrier has slashed the price on its February and March flights to the UK capital with fares starting from $982 return. This low price is for Melbourne to London Gatwick, but Sydney fares are not to be dismissed with their starting price of $997 return.

The last notable flight sale with Cathay Pacific on these routes was under a month ago. It featured return fares from Melbourne for $1,195 and from Sydney for $1,209, giving you a saving of roughly $200 per return flight.

While Cathay Pacific's current sale doesn't include dates in the European summer, travelling during February and March means you'll avoid the peak crowds and could set you up for a magical snow-dusted city. These months are also ideal if you wish to hit the European snow fields or attempt to catch the Northern Lights which are visible from the top of Scotland.

Travellers departing from other major cities have the benefit of cheaper fares across a wider spread of dates. Sample fares on sale at the moment include: Perth to London from $1125 return. Adelaide to London from $1140 return and Brisbane to London from $1146. These are for travel from March 2017 through to January 2018.

All Cathay Pacific fares include complimentary on-board meals, checked-baggage and in-flight entertainment. Flights from Australia to London are not direct and include a stopover at Hong Kong International Airport.

These fares are not part of a particular sale and are available until sold out.
