Fare war on Europe flights as Qantas non-stop London flights drop to less than $1300 return

Screenshot from 2018-03-04 19-34-59.pngQantas has its Perth to London non-stop service on sale from just $1291 return as a fare war erupts on Europe flights from Australia.

The economy sale airfare is well below the normal lowest published fare of $1870 return.

At these fare levels, passengers have an interesting option to gain more space without having to buy premium economy seats, travel agents say.

“A couple can buy a set of three seats for around $3670 return to London at the special sale fare level,” Amity Travel’s Luke Chittock said.

Called an “extra seat” it cannot be booked online and passengers need to call a travel agent or Qantas.

According to Qantas, the taxes and charges normally applicable would not be charged for the extra seat apart from Australian GST.

That would save about $200, bringing the fare for three seats for two passengers to around $3670 based on the sale fare of $1291. However there is no additional baggage allowance for the “extra seat”.

The Qantas fare sale ends on March 27 and conditions apply.
