How good are these New York fares?

  • Price: Great. Even at the best of times, seats to New York fall only fall to the $900s, making $899 return fares practically unheard of. The catch? They're available for students and youths only when you book through STA Travel.
  • Airline: Great. China Southern Airlines is a 4-star airline and is ranked the 14th best airline in the world by Skytrax. It's also full service with checked luggage, meals and entertainment included in your fare.
  • Travel time: Great. All flights include a mandatory stopover in China, which you can extend to enjoy two holidays at the price of one, or use it to stretch your legs across the long trip.
  • Weather: OK. Flights are for the off-season between 19 January and 19 February 2019. It's winter and there's not much in the way of celebrations during this time but that shouldn't stop you from hitting the town! Just remember to take your bomber jacket.

Dreaming of ticking New York off the list? Got a few spare weeks in January and February? You're in luck because STA Travel has done a deal with China Southern Airlines to bring you flights to the Big Apple for under $900 return.

It doesn't matter whether you're flying from Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne or Perth – all flights start from this enviably low price.

The catch? It's only available to youths 26 years or under and students. And flights are during off-peak dates in late January and February. It's a bargain for the price so long as you fit this bill and are happy to travel these dates. But if you're willing to splurge a touch more for better weather Flight Centre might have the answer.

It's currently offering New York fares from $1,188 return out of the same cities with the same airline, with the cheapest fare flying out of Perth. However, all sale fares to New York on China Southern come up under $1,200. Unlike STA, Flight Centre's fares are open to travellers of all ages and travel is slightly more appealing with dates ranging from 21 February - 29 March 2019 which touches on spring.

Fares for both are on sale until 31 August 2018 unless seats sell out.

To book: You can book your $899 return flights with STA Travel online here or hit up Flight Centre's $1,188 return offer here if it suits your needs better.
