Qantas Launches G'Day USA Fare Sale

To celebrate the launch of the sixth annual G'Day USA Australia Week 2009, Qantas Airways is offering sale air fares starting from $380 (each way, based on round trip purchase) for travel to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane from Los Angeles and San Francisco and from $480 each way from New York.

Celebrated in all three Qantas North American gateways - Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco as of this year - the popular festival highlights Australia's vitality as a place for tourism, investment, trade and business.

Qantas sale fares are available for purchase only for a limited time. Ticketing must be completed within 72 hours of reservation and not later than January 13, 2009. Tickets are valid for travel between February 1 and September 21, 2009. Add on fares are permitted and other travel restrictions apply.

Qantas is the first airline to operate the airline's new flagship aircraft - the A380 - on selected flights from Los Angeles to Melbourne and Sydney and currently offers five A380 flights per week between Los Angeles and Australia. To officially welcome San Francisco as the third U.S. city in the G'Day USA program, Qantas Airways is bringing the new A380 aircraft to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) from Sydney, Australia, on January 14, 2009.

(PS - I got the chance to fly business class on the new A380 from LA to Melbourne.....one word: fantastic. But if you want to save cash, book one of the seats in premium economy. They looked great, too.)

For reservations or information, contact Qantas Airways at 800.227.4691.
