AirAsia is offering return fares from Stansted to Australia for a ridiculous £449, including taxes. This is at least £200 less than flights with other airlines, and is only on sale until Thursday, 19 August.
Prices are based on booking direct flights to Kuala Lumpur and adding connecting flights to Perth, Melbourne or the Gold Coast.
To find the lowest return rates to Kuala Lumpur, look for the £199 outbound and £144 inbound tax-inclusive fares. Both are listed as Economy Promo fares. Flights from Kuala Lumpur to Perth, Melbourne and the Gold Coast are priced in Malaysian Ringgits (MYR): Kuala Lumpur to the Gold Coast 523 MYR return (£106), Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne 544 MYR return (£110), Kuala Lumpur to Perth 563 MYR (£115).
The Stansted-Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur-Australia legs will need to be booked separately.
Book by 19 August for travel from 1 April to 11 August, 2011.
Do note that the price excludes checked baggage, in-flight meals and reserved seating, which is worth factoring in on such a long-haul flight. Bags are charged at £6 per 15kg per leg of the journey.
