Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check our list of current flight sales to find a bargain!

Blessed with sunshine, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and iconic landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, California is a mecca for summer holiday fun and you can get there for less with these luxury airline sales.

Qantas, Philippine Airlines, Virgin Australia and Fiji Airways are all having sales to the Californian state for as little as $801 return. These discounted fares are available for travel between May and November 2017, depending on which airline you fly with.

The last notable luxury airline sale to California was earlier this month when Air New Zealand released tickets to Los Angeles for $839 return. However, those fares were for travel in March and April, giving you that much less time to sort out your plans and work out travel companions, annual leave and travel insurance.


Flights to Los Angeles

The cheapest fares to Los Angeles are with Philippine Airlines between October and November. Here's the breakdown:

  • From Melbourne: $801 return
  • From Sydney: $814 return
  • From Darwin: $816 return
  • From Adelaide: $854 return (flying Virgin Australia)
  • From the Gold Coast: $863 return (flying Delta and Virgin Australia)

These flights can be booked through I Want That Flight.

If you're looking to travel earlier, Fiji Airways has the answer. It has flights on sale for travel between April and November, excluding school and public holiday dates. Here's the breakdown:

  • From Melbourne: $977 return
  • From Sydney: $969 return
  • From Brisbane: $959 return
  • From Adelaide: $979 return
  • From Perth: $1,469 return

These flights can be booked through Flight Centre.

Qantas also has flights to Los Angeles on sale, however, its fares start from $1,083 return. These prices are for select dates between May and November 2017 and exclude school and public holiday periods. Here's the breakdown:

  • From Melbourne: $1,083 return
  • From Brisbane: $1,092 return
  • From Sydney: $1,096 return
  • From Perth: $1,187 return
  • From Adelaide: $1,199 return

These flights can be booked through I Want That Flight.

Flights to San Francisco

The cheapest fares to San Francisco are with Qantas, with flights starting from $999 when departing from Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne. For Aussies starting their journey from elsewhere, flights are also available departing from Adelaide and Perth from $1,099 return.

Again, these prices are for select dates between May and November 2017 and exclude school and public holiday periods.

These flights can be booked through I Want That Flight for less than the advertised price on the Qantas website.


All Qantas and Virgin Australian flights are direct and include checked-in luggage, in-flight entertainment and on-board meals. Philippine Airline flights include a stopover in Manila and Fiji Airways flights include a stopover in Nadi.

Qantas's California sale ends 28 March 2017 unless sold out prior.

The Philippine Airlines, Virgin Australia and Fiji Airways sale flights are not part of any particular promotion and are available until sold out.
