‘While we have become accustomed to international fares becoming more affordable every year — they have typically held their price as average wages have increased — in recent times we have seen significant decreases in ticket prices, as airlines seek to fill their planes,’ Turner told Escape.

Mr Turner also told Australians that they shouldn’t waste time taking advantage of the sale.

‘This unprecedented discounting by airlines has delivered incredible value to travellers in the form of some of the cheapest fares we have ever advertised in Australia,’ he said.

There are some additional costs for baggage, meals and in-flight services.
