January Flight Deals
Here is a selection of the top flight deals in January. The best deals this month are flights to Asia with connections to Europe. North American and domestic flights deals aren’t that great so let’s see what next month brings us.
Fly to Europe:
To get these flights, you need to fly Scoot to Singapore then take a flight from Singapore to Frankfurt or elsewhere in Europe. Adioso produces a cheap one way fare of $169. Kayak produces a round trip airfare of ~$1024. Total $1193
A “direct” flight costs $1431 via Kayak.

For comparison, a direct flight from Melbourne to Athens costs around $2000 on other airlines. Keep in mind Qatar Airlines is a 5 star airline.
Fly to the US:
Next closest price fare for $1289 via Adioso

Fly to Asia:
Once you are in Kuala Lumpur, you can often pick up a cheaper flight to Europe and other parts of the world. On my last trip to the US, I flew to Osaka via Jetstar and then directly from Osaka to NY. Currently, a flight from Melb-Osaka is about $492 (returne) and a flight from Osaka to NY is around $1150 for a total of $1642. A “direct” flight for the same time period comes to $1728. So instead of having a really long flight, you can split the flight into 2 segment and also see Japan for a similar price as flying direct.
