Stop everything: AirAsia’s got flights to Malaysia on sale from $191 return

Posted: 30 July 2018 11:00 am

These flights are not only dirt cheap, they're direct, too.

We've uncovered super cheap flights to Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur starting at $191 return, or $80.50 each way.

That's cheaper than travelling across Australia.

They're also cheaper than AirAsia's launch fares from Melbourne-Kuala Lumpur which started from $99 each way, or $198 return.

We're unsure whether this is a mistake fare or not, but they are selling through Flight Finder here and are specifically for 13-25 March flights on AirAsia X.

Flights take off from Perth are are direct to Kuala Lumpur, taking around 5.5 hours each way, which is enough for a quick nap before hitting the city running.

If these dates don't work for you, other dates in March are similarly priced. For example, 14-25 March seats are going for $203 and 4-26 March flights from $209 return.

Flights from other cities take a drastic incline, starting at $293 return from Sydney and $355 return from Melbourne.

These fares aren't part of any particular promotion and are only available until sold out. With a limited number of routes and fares on sale, it's likely that'll happen sooner rather than later.
