  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Australia flight deals.
  • The vast southern continent of Australia is served by a series of international airports that link its major regions with the outside world. Perth Airport (PER) and Port Hedland International Airport (PHE) are gateways to the plains of Western Australia, while Darwin International Airport (DRW) unlocks the region of the Northern Territory.
  • The more populous southern half of the continent is dominated by the cities of Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne in the east, all of which provide numerous flights from the US to Australia. Virgin Australia offers nonstop service from Los Angeles (LAX) to Sydney (SYD) and Melbourne (MEL), while Jetstar provides flights from Honolulu (HNL) to Sydney and Brisbane.
  • The eastern territory of Queensland provides the longest uninterrupted stretch of coastland in Australia, anchored by Brisbane Airport (BNE) and its city at the most southern point. Brisbane Airport is a good starting point to explore northern points along the Australian coast of the Coral Sea, or you can stay closer to home after your flight from the US to Australia and discover the legendary Gold Coast.
  • There are no major airports that service the interior of the Australian continent, so if you wish to visit, you’ll have to fly from Brisbane Airport into a regional airport like Mt. Isa Airport or Charleville Airport. Both provide access to the Western reaches of Queensland, into the heart of the province of the Northern Territory and the state of South Australia.
  • To explore the northern reaches of Australia, it will be necessary to get a flight from Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne into Darwin International Airport (DRW), which is the gateway to the area. From there, you can set your sights on Derby and Wyndham in Western Australia as well as the coastal areas of the Northern Territory and Queensland.

Pros: "Great choices for entertainment; food was hot; crew was excellent to the point of bringing a hot moist towel to wash face/hands with in the morning before serving breakfast; boarding went quickly with having 2 rows to fill in, not just one; the best, however, was the cabin crew bringing water consistently through the night to those that were awake. My husband even took a glass and held it for me while I was snuggled under the blanket. Kudos, crew!!"

Pros: "Perfect trip. Accommodated my low sodium diet. Professional, efficient and friendly."

Cons: "There was no leg room. Also, the flight was about 1.5 hrs late departing, which almost caused me to miss my next flight."

Pros: "Getting seats as a stand by passenger."

Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Cons: "I was not given a meal for dinner. When I asked they sheepishly looked away from me and told me that there would be a voucher when we landed. We did not get any voucher,nor did they make an announcement that they ran out of food and would not be able to feed half of the plane. I am extremely disappointed in how this was handled, as people next to me were given first class meals and I was given one piece of cheese and one cracker. In the morning for breakfast my meal almost didn't come, I had to ask for it. And when it was given to me it was already opened and messed with."

Pros: "Liked how seats reclined more than usual and head rest curved. Good thing blankets were provided because it was freezing cold. Pillow was great for lower back."

Pros: "I liked that there was breakfast on the plane"
Cons: "The seats weren't very adjustable or comfortable and there could have been more movie and tv selection for such a long flight"

Cons: "We get to LA for our connection and security says we need to check in again, and no one is at the fiji airways desk to check us in! The security guard sees this, lets us through to check in at the gate so we sprint there and 4 agents are standing around saying they are surprised we made it."

Cons: "my seat, i am to big"

Pros: "Customer service was nice, the food was ehh."
Cons: "For an international flight, the seats were extremely tight. There could've been a few more movies to choose from."

Cons: "Traffic on the take off strip made us sit in our seats for a long time, about an hour and I had my infant on my lap who had peed through his pants but I wasn’t allowed to go to the lavatory and change his diaper or clothes! Not just this but I also had a very important meeting to attend in Seoul for business and the flight delay made me late! Unacceptable"

I got chicken dish which I could not consume... I wish I had a crew who could speak English so that I could communicate about the situation, but I just let go of the issue. I am planning to go fasting on my returned ride."

Cons: "No WiFi, no charging. Food was inedible."

Pros: "At the moment I'm here at Beijing Airport because of their 22hr delay. They promised a hotel, but there was nobody to ask where to go too. People speak poor English. So I just decided to stay and check at the airport hourly hotel just so I could take a shower and sleep.. But it was full and waiting. So I'm here 2am waiting for my 6pm to Manila. This will be my and my last with Air China!! They are not customer and client friendly. This the mosr terrible flight I've been. Never again!"

Pros: "It was my 1st family trip to Korea from LA, USA. I was worried before trip because I have just turned 1 year baby.

Cons: "Wverything else"

Cons: "Held my bag for two days, No explanation, apparently just wanted to rummage through it. Stranded in Mongolia with no clean clothes or medication."

Pros: "more legroom than usual, and seats reclined more than average, making for a fairly comfortable flight. Entertainment options in English are somewhat limited."
Cons: "i ordered the special vegetarian meal, while my son had the standard meals. The special meal was plain rice with a bit of steamed greens, my son's meal was the same plus a bit of chicken. Not much food for such a long flight, and no snacks are offered, so we were both hungry. (and we are not big eaters) We had planned to purchase food in the airport (LAX) but all the lines were quite long and we ended up not having enough time. Will definitely plan on bringing food and snacks with us on the return flight."

Cons: "Cabin was really dirty, carpet coming apart and stain on the seats"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My fly was delayed 2 times. First, i flu from lax to beijing, my fly was changed at last minutes so they changed our to another fly to have enough time to transfer in beijing . However, i had to pay 150$ more for the seat because this fly was full. Second, my fly in Beijing was delayed again. this time I waited 6 hours. When i asked them how long this fly delayed? They did not give me any answer, so my family in vietnam was waiting for me 6 hours in the airport. I will never back with air china. I think they delayed the fly on their purpose. They have many choice for time when you book ticket . Bur later they will delay to have full customer from many different fly make all customers in only one fly to save their cost"

Pros: "Overall airline experience was nice. Good food, comfortable seating."
Cons: "At the airport, clerks insisted we check our baggage, and upon collection in Bangkok, there was a note inside informing me that customs had removed 3 valuable batteries from my bag."

Cons: "Almost four hour delay to destination"

Cons: "The video selections had limited appeal to westerners."

Pros: "Friendly crew. Had good seats"
Cons: "T.v. didn't work."

Cons: "Beijing airport was under construction. There was long delay."

Pros: "Serving two meals"
Cons: "Coffee was bad"

Cons: "I got my baggage after 4 days from landing."

Pros: "Only boarding"
Cons: "No drunks like other flights"

Pros: "Short ride over to Phoenix, very nice trip"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Fair"
