Fares this low to Australia that include the Christmas period is almost unheard of! So, if you’ve got family and friends down under or you fancy ‘shrimps on the barbie’ instead of turkey and all the trimmings then what are you waiting for?

China Southern is one of the better rated Chinese airlines and many of its flights are operated by modern, state of the art Dreamliners and A380s. This super low fare even includes 23kg of hold luggage and free seat selection so you can be sure to snag a window seat if you’re an AvGeek or make sure you’re sitting with (or far away from) your family. These are great perks, especially for such a long flight!

Also, you might notice that some of the options include a lengthy overnight layover. Well, China Southern will put you up for FREE in a hotel and transfer passengers are entitled to a 48 hour transit visa which means you can go for a nice authentic Chinese meal then get a good night’s sleep before your flight the next day.

I chose to give options that include Christmas Day itself as this is where the real deal is, but there are also lots of dates available in November.
