Australia to Europe?
I noticed that you usually get super-cheap tickets flying via Colombo. Are you aware of any trick to find cheap tickets from Perth (or Melbourne) to Italy?!?
I’m usually unable to find any cattle-class ticket for less than 2 grand…
Thank you very much in advance!
Paolo, there really is no “trick” to finding the fares from CMB, CAI etc. That’s just what the fares are based on demand from that market. Unfortunately the same market conditions doesn’t apply down under 🙁
Hey Paolo, for around which dates are you looking at? I was just having a quick look using Google Flights and there were [URL=’https://www.google.de/flights/#search;f=PER;t=FCO;d=2016-08-14;r=2016-09-08;sel=PERCAN0CZ320-CANCDG1CZ347-CDGFCO1AF1504;q=perth-fco’]some fares for under 1k € [/URL](just under USD 1100), though they require a couple of stops, and might be slightly tedious.
Good luck though, as flights between Australia and Europe do tend to be very costly.
