London flights from $987 return

Shave that much more off full-service flights to the UK.

Shoulder season is one of the most idyllic times to visit London as the weather beats warm and the crowds are few. Now, you can get there from just $987 return, thanks to the latest sale from Air China.

This deal comes a few weeks after Garuda Indonesia lowered its prices to $999 return on flights for similar dates. At $12 cheaper, it's not a great deal of difference, but it does mean a pint or two more at the pub when on holiday.

These $987 return flights take off from Melbourne between 2 May and 20 June, and 11 October and 15 November. Sure, you miss the heart of summer, but play your dates right and you can experience Guy Fawkes Night in the UK on 5 November and be in town for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on 19 May 2018.

Other fares on sale, for the same travel dates, include Sydney to London from $999 and Brisbane to London from $999 return.

Perth and Adelaide flights are also available via China Southern from $999. However, these are for the more restrictive time period of 3 May - 14 June 2018.

As these fares aren't part of any particular promotion, you have until seats sell out to book them. You can secure your seat with Flight Centre here.

How good are these fares?

Flights $1,000 or under is the benchmark for cheap fares to London and when they're full service as well, you know you've snapped up a great deal. Right now, these flights are being rivalled by Garuda Indonesia, which is offering $999 return fares, and might also be an option as Garuda is a 5-star airline, while Air China is a 3-star.

On the upside, Air China includes a stopover in China and Australians are entitled to a visa-free stopover of 72-hours or less in the country. So you can essentially add another "holiday" onto this trip if you play your dates and flights right.
