Hong Kong or Shanghai from $558 return
Score a third off flights with the flying kangaroo.
Qantas AKA the flying kangaroo is having a three day sale on flights to Hong Kong and Shanghai with departures from all across Australia.
Melbourne to Shanghai is the cheapest fare of the lot, coming up at $558 return when travelling between 4 March and 25 April 2018. Travel outside this period (eg 1-3 March) and you're looking at flights priced a third more at $887 return.
You know the drill. Choose your dates wisely.
Other fares in this sale include: Adelaide to Shanghai from $599, Brisbane to Hong Kong from $598, Sydney to Shanghai from $599 and Sydney to Hong Kong from $629 return.
Flights to Hong Kong are for travel between 5 March and 25 April, this is likely due to the end of the peak Chinese New Year season when travellers tend to return home. Flights to Shanghai are available over a wider range of dates, spanning January to October, depending on your route.
Weather-wise, you'll want to get into Hong Kong before May as this is when rainy season begins while Shanghai is best during autumn and spring (April-May and September-October, respectively) when the weather is cool and pleasant for sightseeing.
As mentioned above, this is a three-day sale only, ending at midnight 24 November. Bookings at these prices can be made online with Flight Centre now.
