COVID-19: Half price airfares subsidised by the Federal Government start today
All major domestic airlines are advertising these fares, and although there are aroudn 800,000 of them – expect them to go soon.
There are various rules around them, and they only apply to certain destinations, but instead of providing you with a list – here are the direct links to the domestic sales on each airline:
Places you could go
Here is a list of some of the destinations targeted:
- Gold Coast
- The Whitsundays
- The Sunshine Coast
- Alice Springs
- Kangaroo Island
- Lasseter (which includes Uluru)
The half price discount seems to apply to economy fares only – pity. However, the fares do in fact appear to be half-price based on a quick sampling.
A good summary of the half price scheme is available on the ABC website.
Good luck with scoring a deal before the end of July!
