Take off to South America with Qantas from just $1,017 return

Alex Keshen 6 November 2018 NEWS

Peak-season flights to four cities across Chile, Brazil and Peru on sale.

You can now hop over to South America with the flying kangaroo for as little as $1,017 return.

The latest Qantas Fly Away Sale has discounted peak-season fares to a handful of cities in South America, including Santiago de Chile, Rio de Janeiro and Lima.

While Qantas is advertising these fares from $1,098 (for Brisbane-Santiago), we found that if you book through Skyscanner, you can get them for even less. We found the same Brisbane-Santiago route for $1,020 return and flights for Sydney-Santiago (advertised for $1,099 return) from $1,017 return.

These flights are available from 1 January until 30 September 2019, which includes peak summer dates as well as autumn and winter.

Flights from Sydney to Santiago are direct, while the rest of the fares do require a stopover.

As with all Qantas fares, checked baggage, in-flight meals and entertainment are included. You can also collect Qantas Points from these flights.

The Qantas Fly Away Sale is on until 9 November, but we recommend booking as soon as possible to get the best fares.

How good are these Qantas South America fares?

  • Price: Great. Especially considering that these flights are available during a wide travel window with a premium carrier like Qantas.
  • Airline: Great. Qantas is both one of the best airlines in the South Pacific and one of the world's safest airlines, and the fares include bags, food and entertainment.
  • Travel time: Great. Flights to Santiago from Sydney are all direct, with other cities requiring a connection in Sydney. If you're flying to other destinations in South America, you'll need to change planes upon arrival in Chile.
  • Weather: Good. We've looked into the best times to travel to different parts of South America, including the destinations included in this sale, and our preferred times to visit all fall within these travel dates.
