South America flights from $1,065 return

Parque Metropolitano, Santiago, Chile, South America

These winter flights to Santiago are still championing.

Flights to the Chilean capital of Santiago on Qantas have taken a dip with fares now starting from $1,065 return.

At these prices, you'll be flying full-service, have the chance to earn those precious Qantas Frequent Flyer points and travel in a quieter, though still comfortable, shoulder season between May and June.

Flights take off from all across Australia and feature fares such as Sydney to Santiago from $1,065, Melbourne to Santiago from $1,075 and Adelaide to Santiago from $1,098 return.

These flights are on sale until midnight 3 January through Flight Centre.

How good are these flight fares?

This is an extension of the Qantas Santiago flight sale that launched earlier this month. Starting fares have gone up since then by around $80, so you're definitely paying more for having missed the first sale. You're also looking at a slightly more restrictive set of dates comparatively, no doubt due to certain dates having sold out their sale seats.

Compared to other Qantas flight sales, these still come up fairly well-priced as flights along this route don't generally get too much lower.

Other airlines flying this route include LATAM, which currently has cheaper Melbourne to Santiago flights at $1,049 return though more expensive flights from Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

How good are these travel dates?

There's really no poor time to visit Chile, though winter is peak due to the cooler weather and because it coincides with North America's summer holiday break. May and June are quieter autumn dates and are some of the better months to visit for fewer crowds.
