Heading down under can cost a fortune, but thanks to Air China’s fares starting at a very tempting £445 return, now’s a good time to consider booking to Melbourne (MEL) or Sydney (SYD). There’s so much to do in Australia, so you’ll probably need more than a couple of weeks. Luckily, these fares are available for several months starting in February through June, so you’ll have plenty of time.

The flights are via Beijing, the nation’s capital, and the layover time varies. While we don’t often hear much about Air China, we consider its economy class product a solid option.

To book, head to Skyscanner and enter London LHR as your departure airport and either Melbourne (MEL) or Sydney (SYD) as your destination. Then, all you need to do is select Air China as the airline and scroll through the calendar to find the dates and prices that suit you best. Remember, once you’ve found the fare, head to the airline’s website to book to make sure you have the best protection.
