Qantas Implements Travel Stimulus Offer for North Americans Flying to Australia and New Zealand

Can't miss discounted fares start as low as $299 each way to Down Under

Los Angeles - March 14, 2009

Offering financial incentive for North American travelers heading to Australia and New Zealand, Qantas Airways presents an attractive Aussie and Kiwi travel stimulus with one of the lowest airfares in years. Starting at just $299 each way in economy (based on round trip purchase, plus tax and fees), travelers can fly from Los Angeles and San Francisco to Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney from now until October 24, 2009, with ticketing required by March 20, 2009.

"Travelers can now double their benefits by taking advantage of incredibly low airfares and with the favorable currency exchange rates, every US dollar goes about 40 percent further," said Wally Mariani, Qantas Airways senior executive vice president, The Americas and Pacific.

"We believe these deep discounts will make an escape to Australia or New Zealand an opportunity that is just too good to pass up."

Economy air fares from New York start at $399 each way (with roundtrip purchase) for travel from June 10, 2009 to October 24, 2009. For travelers departing Mexico City, fares are $499 each way and are valid from now until October 24, 2009. Other restrictions apply.
