Cheap Open-Jaw Flights from London to Australia (Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney) for £570 Return on Etihad

Luxury airline Etihad is offering attractive fares to several Australian destinations for under £600 Return

Etihad Airways is a 5-star airline according to Skytrax, but who said luxury and cheap were mutually exclusive?

They are currently offering attractive fares to various Australian destinations (with a short connection at the airline’s base in Abu Dhabi):

  • Brisbane
  • Melbourne
  • Sydney

Travel dates for these fares are extensive and include the last week of January 2019 through to June 2019.

What sets this particular fare apart from others, in my view, is that open jaws are allowed. What this means is that you can depart from a different airport to where you arrived for pretty much the same price as a single-destination return flight.

This effectively means you could, for example, fly to Brisbane, make your own way to Sydney via a road trip or one-way flight, and then catch your return flight from Sydney. The possibility of seeing more of this beautiful country for a great price will surely make your holiday more rewarding! You just need to use the “multi-city” feature on the Etihad website or on a flight comparison site, and type in your preferred arrival and return destinations in Australia.

If you book direct from the Etihad website, flights are coming up as just over £600, but if you book via an Online Travel Agent (OTA), you can get this fare for as little as £570 return. You can find the cheapest OTA through skyscanner or momondo.

You could potentially enrich your trip even more by stacking this offer with Etihad’s free stopover in Abu Dhabi offer that’s running until 12th November. This lets you break up your journey in Abu Dhabi with a free 2-night hotel stay. However, do factor in the fact that the free stopover offer is only valid for flights purchased directly from the Etihad website, where they are comparatively pricier compared to OTA fares.
