Cheapest fare ever: Scoot launches $299 flights to Europe
Just when you thought you'd missed out on a cheap flight to Europe this year, along comes a deal so jaw-dropping it changes everything.
Scoot has just launched its "Deal of the Decade" sale, including flights from Australia to Europe from $299 - as cheap as we've ever seen.
The $299 fares will get you to from Perth to Athens, and are only available for select dates between now and May.
Fares from east coast Australia - Gold Coast, Sydney or Melbourne - start from $309.
That's the lowest advertised sale price since Scoot launched the Athens route in 2017. During its initial launch sale, Scoot was selling the Athens route from $369 from Perth and $419 from the east coast, and prices have gone progressively lower with each Scoot sale since. However, this is the first time it's dropped below $300.
While Athens is the standout fare, Scoot is also spruiking deals across its network, including flights from $119 to Singapore. As the airline puts it, that's "cheaper than dinner for two and a bottle of wine".
Japan fares start from $209, Thailand from $149, Vietnam from $159, Bali from $149 and Hong Kong from $189. All flights are via Singapore.
Sale fares don't include checked luggage or food, but do include up to 10kg carry-on luggage.
The Deal of the Decade sale is on until 2.59am (AEDT) Friday, February 28.
