Find out how you're saving yourself $58 on a return flight with this Qantas sale.

UPDATE 10 AUGUST 2021: The Australian government has extended the Tourism Aviation Network Support package until 30 November 2021. The table at the end of this article has been updated with a list of fares currently on sale.

Yes, you read that right, Qantas is outdoing itself with some of the lowest fares we've seen as the government's incentive drops.

"Almost every destination that Qantas and Jetstar flies to is on sale, including plenty of chances to grab half price fares as part of the government's tourism stimulus package," Qantas domestic and international CEO Andrew David said.

Aussies can find the cheapest route in the south between Melbourne and Launceston from as little as $70 one way.

The sale seats definitely don't stop there, check out:

  • Sydney to the Gold Coast from $77 one way
  • Adelaide to Kangaroo Island from $80 one way
  • Melbourne to Adelaide from $88 one way
  • Sunshine Coast to Melbourne from $100 one way
  • Hamilton Island to Sydney from $117 one way
  • Perth to Darwin from $200 one way

So when can you fly? Travel dates run from mid-August to the end of November 2021 and specific dates may apply.

It really is a no-brainer. Head over to KAYAK to compare prices now, then book with Flight Centre before someone else snags your seats first.

This Qantas sale runs until 30 November 2021 but it's first in, first served so we wouldn't wait around for too long.

How do these prices stack up?

Where do we even begin! Full-service Qantas fares from $70? Unheard of. The lowest prices we've seen in the past two years from the flying kangaroo haven't gone a dollar under $99 a pop.

The last Qantas sale hosted the Melbourne-Launceston route from $99 and this offer has seats at $70 each way, a whopping saving of $58 when you fly return.

"People know exactly what to expect when they book with Qantas, whether its complimentary food and drinks, baggage, fast Wi-Fi or access to dozens of lounges around Australia, and with Jetstar it's everyday low fares to a vast network of holiday destinations," Mr David added.

How good are these fares?

  • Flexibility: Great. Passengers are now entitled to unlimited, free date changes until February 2022. This applies to all domestic flights booked until 30 April 2021.
  • Airline: Great. Our flying kangaroo is one of three full-service carriers in Australia. Enjoy checked baggage, in-flight meals and entertainment all included in your airfares.
  • Frequent flyer points: Good. Earn Frequent Flyer points when you fly with this Qantas sale. This offer scores you a minimum of 800 Qantas points and 10 status credits.
  • Travel time: Great. Get holidaying sooner rather than later with direct routes.
  • Weather: Great. Keen to see the heart of Australia? Head to Uluru between May and September for perfect temperatures and cheaper travelling. Avoid school holiday periods (late June to early July) as prices tend to spike and accommodation is busier.
