Get your Greek on with dirt cheap fares to Europe.

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

Greasy gyros, balmy beaches, ancient cities, oodles of Ouzo and exciting islands! If this sounds tempting, don't miss out on Scoot's latest European sale, offering prices lower than when it launched the route.

Singapore Airlines' subsidiary Scoot is offering Aussies a chance to fly to Europe for less. Fares from Perth to Athens, via Singapore, start at just $678 return, while flights from other major cities including Sydney, the Gold Coast and Melbourne are $778 to $798 return.

This is a slight step up from its $669 Perth to Athens fares the budget airline was offering in April for practically the same flight dates. So while not the cheapest, are still on point for being some of the most competitive tickets around.

While these economy class fares are a great deal, ScootBiz takes it a step further with extra leg room, 30kg of checked luggage allowance, a welcome drink and one additional alcoholic beverage, a variety of meal choices, priority check-in & boarding, in-seat power outlets and ScooTV streaming options.

Available travel dates are from August 2017 to March 2018, with a smattering of flights for next year, ideal for end-of-year European summer jaunts or planning ahead for next year.

Flights are for select dates only and blackout periods apply.

These prices echo fellow Southeast Asian budget carrier AirAsia X's years-gone cheap fares from Kuala Lumpur to London. The service, incredibly popular among Australian travellers, was canned in 2012 due to the high cost of fuel needed to power the airline's A340s, which operated the route.

However, from 2018 the Malaysian carrier will take delivery of 66 new Airbus A330neo aircraft and will likely reboot the route, AirAsiaX CEO Benyamin Ismail told The Australian.

    Went to website to book Perth to Athens special $325 flight dates of special was 20 June 2017 to 20th October 2017.

    Could hardly find any dates where flights were available and when I did they were very high prices.
    I phoned Scoot and after a long wait the person said she would look into it. Then after being put on hold for awhile she said. ” flights from Melbourne ” I said please listen to me, I already explained twice the dates of Scoots special and from Perth to Athens…

    She said she would go and look again. I got angry and said don’t bother I will book with another airline.

    Blatant false advertising and I will forward all of my information to the ACCC. Companies who falsify advertising in Australia face very large fines.

    Please book with another company who don’t lie.

      Hi Allan,

      Thanks for your comment and honest feedback and I’m sorry to hear you negative experience in booking a flight.

      As the seats and promo fares are usually available for a limited time, by the time that you will check these promos on Scoot, there will be chances that the offer may have already changed.

      Just in case you still want to get updated fares and flight promotions, you may click here to be redirected to Flight Centre via live chat.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Vicky,

      You will need to place your query through Flight Centre here which you can use to book flights on the Gold Coast to Athens leg.

      The prices included in our article were current in August. These prices may have changed since then.

      Hope that helps,
