Cathay Pacific are offering some extremely competitive business class fares from Europe to Australia and New Zealand for November 2019. They are more than 33% cheaper than normal.
There appear to be only a few seats left on the flights in question, however I thought it was worth mentioning. Someone may wish to visit the Southern Hemisphere before the Christmas season begins again.
Europe to Australia Fares
Departing from Stockholm, there seem to be deals on flights to both Australia and New Zealand. I originally checked Auckland in the hopes of a great Qatar Airways fare and found the fare below.
Converting 23,435 Swedish Krona into Euro gives a price of €2,250 or US$2,560. Pretty much a bargain for three flights, a British Airways flight to London, Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong, then Air New Zealand to Auckland.
When it comes to flights to Australia, they are usually quite expensive in Business Class, especially on oneworld alliance airlines. In this instance, I struck gold on flights to Sydney.
Pricing is almost identical to the Auckland flights as 23,802 SEK comes to €2,280 or US$2,600, all on Cathay Pacific. This is great for people earning miles and tier points in the British Airways Executive Club as the six flights take you straight to Silver or Sapphire.
I found the flights available departing Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in November, and returning two weeks later on a Tuesday or Wednesday. Searching other months on similar Tuesday days for two weeks returned the standard €3,800 fare.
Those who may want to go in other months perhaps have some luck. Air China were showing Business Class fares from about July onwards from Stockholm to Sydney for about €1,950 quite regularly, which may be useful.
What do you think of these fares from Cathay Pacific? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
