Things to note:

  • AirAsia is a low-cost airline, meaning that you will need to pay extra for checked baggage and inflight meals, e.g. a 20kg checked bag will add AU$43
  • AirAsia charges an AU$10 processing fee per flight for both debit and credit card purchases
  • Booking through Expedia instead of the AirAsia website means the prices above include the credit card surcharge

Booking links: With fares on sale until 15 July, you can book directly with AirAsia or, whilst not much, you can earn 0.7% cashback as well as Expedia Rewards points if booking through Cashrewards‘ Expedia link

Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. Fares may disappear quickly, so we suggest booking as soon as you are confident in your travel dates.
