Save $300+ by opting to fly with Philippine Airlines this December.

New York is a city that is always on the cards. Whether you've never been or have been multiple times, it calls to you time and time again. (At least it has, us).

Now you can travel to the Big Apple for under $900 return on a full-service carrier thanks to this sale with Philippine Airlines.

According to Skyscanner, these are the cheapest fares you can grab to New York this year. Departures from Melbourne start from $854 return, from Sydney for $867 and Brisbane from $904.

The cheapest travel dates are during off-peak in November and early December. This isn't the most ideal time to travel to be honest as the temperatures are starting to drop and there isn't much going on around the city, however if price is your driver this is the sale for you.

You can compare flights and book them now through Skyscanner.

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. It's near impossible to score fares to New York under $900 return. At the time of writing Qantas' best price was $1,199 during similar dates which is $300+ pricier.
  • Travel time: OK. Melbourne-New York flights at their cheapest involve a massive 32 hours of travel time. Compared to Qantas this is around 10 hours more. The time eaten up comes from a 7.5 hour layover in Manila which you could potentially work into a longer trip, depending on if that appeals to you.
  • Airline: Great. Philippine Airlines is a 4-star full-service carrier where luggage, in-flight meals and entertainment are included in your fare.
  • Travel dates/weather: Fair. Travel is for off-peak dates in November and early December during winter, which isn't the most ideal time to visit the city though comes with thinning crowds and Christmas lights and merriment.
