COVID-19: Half price airfares subsidised by the Federal Government start today

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
  • Cairns
  • The Whitsundays
  • Mackay
  • Darwin
  • Townsville
  • Hobart
  • The Sunshine Coast
  • Alice Springs
  • Adelaide
  • Launceston
  • Devonport
  • Burnie
  • Broome
  • Avalon
  • Merimbula
  • 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!
