Calling all travel junkies! If you’ve been toying with the idea of visiting “down under,” now is the time.
World renowned airline Cathay Pacific (recently named the World’s Best Airline in the annual World Skytrax Awards) is currently offering fare savings up to 12 percent off Premium Economy and Economy Class airfares from Canada to Auckland and a choice of six cities in Australia, including Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Cairns.
I lived in Australia for a year in my early 20s (a very long time ago!) and absolutely fell in love with the country. My first few months were spent in the cute town of Balmain, just outside of Sydney, then I grabbed my backpack and travelled to Melbourne and Tasmania, followed by a hop-on-and-off coach trip up the east coast to Cairns. Sadly, I haven’t been back since, but am definitely getting the Oz itch. And the Hubster has never been “down under,” so perhaps we should consider a trip to my third home (first is Toronto, ON; second is London, U.K.).
Though I haven’t as yet flown with Cathay Pacific, they are an airline that I totally want to experience due to their luxurious planes and first class service. I recently had the opportunity to visit the Boeing Plant in Everitt, to check out their brand new Boeing 777-300ER, B-KQN. The plane was absolutely gorgeous, and all I wanted to do was curl up in one of the fancy pods in biz class and fly off to Hong Kong (or New York, or Australia!). Ahhh, maybe one day. 🙂
Travelling half way around the world is expensive, so it’s always a great idea to take advantage of sales when they happen. I am a frugal flyer myself.
Premium Economy Class and Economy Class airfares are on sale until 22 September, 2014. All flights operative via Hong Kong. For further details and bookings, call Cathay Pacific Reservations at 1-800-268-6868, or visit: Cathay Pacific SW Pacific Fare Sale.
