How to get a cheap flight to New York for $935 return

I Want That Flight has taken a slice out of the price of Virgin Australia flights to the Big Apple.

13 April 2016: The price of flights to New York City has dropped, with roundtrip fares to the American city now available for as low as $935 return. That includes a checked bag of up to 23kg.

These flights, operated by Virgin Australia and Virgin America, are hundreds of dollars less than the usual price of fares on this route.

The $935 fares are available from Sydney, but flights from other cities are available for slightly higher rates, including Brisbane from $937 and Melbourne from $966.

With the current exchange rate on the US dollar higher than it’s been in recent years, these low fares, which are available for purchased made by POLi, make a trip to America much more affordable.

These rates are available on select dates in October and November, just in time to see the leaves changing colour in Central Park and the city’s Christmas lights and displays starting to sparkle.
