qantas announces huge north america sale; return flights under $1,200

In an exciting development for Aussie and American travellers, Qantas has unveiled a sensational North American sale, offering discounted flights from Australia to key destinations, including Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Dallas, and Vancouver. These special rates are available for booking until 12 March 2024, catering to travel periods extending up to 30 November 2024!

Aussies keen to head overseas should consider nabbing a flight soon, with business and economy seat prices dropping to almost half compared to last year’s airfares.

The sale encompasses a broad spectrum of departure points across Australia—Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth—with options ranging from Economy to Premium Economy to Business class seats. This presents a fantastic opportunity for travellers to experience the carrier’s extensive network across the US and Canada at reduced prices.

David Boyd, co-founder of popular credit card comparison platform Credit Card Compare Australia, highlights the strategic benefits of leveraging credit card rewards in conjunction with Qantas’s sensational North America sale.

“Qantas’s latest sale is a golden opportunity for savvy travellers to maximise the value of every dollar spent by using rewards or frequent flyer credit cards,”

“Not only can travellers take advantage of reduced fares to key North American destinations, but by booking these flights with a suitable credit card, they can accumulate significant rewards or frequent flyer points.”

For those eyeing an economical journey, Economy class tickets start at $1,199 for a return flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. Premium Economy voyagers can relish in fares starting from $3,199 for a return journey from Melbourne to San Francisco, while Business class travellers can indulge in the luxury of flying from Brisbane to Vancouver starting from $5,999 return.

James Kavanagh, global leisure CEO for Flight Centre Travel Group, told, they’re seeing the cost of flights heading down this year, describing the drop as “huge”.

“The main driver of low prices generally comes from increased competition and capacity so it’s good to see the airlines battling it out through their recent sales,” Mr Kavanagh told

“We’re seeing significant savings across carriers, destinations, and classes of travel so there’s something for everyone.

Whether you’re flying directly or with a stopover, Qantas ensures a comfortable and convenient journey depending on your departure city and chosen route. Highlighting the airline’s commitment to exceptional service, all long-haul sale flights include checked baggage, seat selection, and complimentary food and beverages, ensuring a seamless travel experience.

This sale, marking Qantas’s seventh in 10 weeks, coincides with the domestic Red Tail sale, which concludes on 11 March 2024. It follows the airline’s efforts to enhance its service offerings, such as increasing the frequency of its Sydney–New York flights via Auckland to four times a week in October 2023 and boosting capacity to Los Angeles. This demonstrates Qantas’s dedication to providing passengers with more options and better connectivity.
