    Following positive customer feedback on Qantas’ recent international sale, the Flying Kangaroo has discounted more than 500,000 fares on most routes across its domestic network.

    Domestic economy sale fares start from $109 one-way, with more than 25 routes on sale for under $150, for travel from April to mid-September 2024.

    The sale includes destinations to and from most capital cities and regional towns, including Brisbane to Prosperine and Adelaide to Kangaroo Island, helping customers to discover places across Australia and provide a boost for local tourism.

    This comes off the back of a New Zealand sale Qantas launched this week, which is the biggest outbound and inbound market for Australia, with sale fares to Auckland, Christchurch, Queenstown and Wellington.

    International economy sale fares start from $499 return and include flights to and from most Australian capital cities for travel between March and December this year.

    “We saw a huge response to our international sale last week and we expect this domestic sale to be just as popular,” Qantas’ chief customer officer Catriona Larritt said.

    “This is the fifth sale from Qantas this year, giving hundreds of thousands of Australians the option to lock-in discounted fares to their dream holiday destination.”

    Some of the one-way economy domestic sale fares (starting from) are below.
