Discount return fares now available

Qantas and Ansett have announced a range of heavily-discounted return fares on major domestic routes in a bid to counter the competition on one-way fares from Virgin Blue and Impulse.

Ansett is currently offering Sydney to Canberra or the Gold Coast return airfares for $143 – Melbourne to the Gold Coast return is $277.20. Sydney-Perth return is available for $550 and Adelaide-Sydney return is $226.

The Perth airfare special is available until March 31, for travel until June 30 this year while the fares on the other routes are for sale and travel until November.

Qantas is offering Melbourne-Sydney, Sydney-Brisbane/Gold Coast for $132 return. Sydney-Adelaide, Melbourne-Brisbane and Brisbane-Townsville travellers can fly return for $198. Adelaide-Brisbane/GoldCoast return is $220.

These fares are available until April 9 and you must travel between March 19 and July 1.

Conditions apply of course and the number of tickets available at these prices are bound to be limited.
