A great compromise between business and Economy class is Premium economy. Only a select number of airlines offer a premium Economy cabin for flights from the UK to Melbourne such as Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Qantas. Premium Economy offers travellers a separate cabin from the usual Economy cabin with a larger, lengthier seat. It even comes with a footrest and lumbar support giving you a good level of comfort compared to Economy class.

There are a number of airlines that fly Economy class to Melbourne and the vast majority offer a similar seat dynamic in terms of pitch and recline. We would advise that paying a slight premium for a reputable airline such as Emirates who operate the Airbus A380 from the UK to Melbourne which offers a great service and is one of the newest crafts in the air. Alternatively, Etihad now fly the brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner which is one of the greenest and fuel efficient crafts in operation. The noise levels are also significantly reduced on the newer crafts allowing you to sleep without the roar of the engines heard on the older crafts. Be sure to consult one of our agents to ensure you fly out on dates which operate the newer crafts throughout the entire journey.
Melbourne is a great place to visit during the Australian summer months from December to March. This is the most popular time to travel with many tourists visiting from around the world. It is the premier sporting event destination with lots of events taking place throughout the year such as the Australian Grand Prix, Open Tennis, Test match cricket, horse racing and much more. Flight prices across these dates and in particular the Christmas and New Year run in can be expensive so do book as early as possible.
To avoid the rush and secure a great deal, March to May and September to November is ideal with Melbourne enjoying its Spring and Autumn seasons. The weather is also mild so sight-seeing and visiting attractions is a lot easier with less crowds and pleasant warmth.
June to August is deemed off-peak and temperatures can drop to similar temperatures to those of the UK winter. This period is the cheapest dates to travel but don’t be put off as Melbourne has a wide variety of indoor attractions and amazing restaurants to keep you busy and away from the cold.
Planning and booking well in advance is always a good idea if you intend to visit Australia. If you intend to visit during the Christmas period, we would highly recommend booking as soon as you can and if at all possible a year in advance. We’ve found seasoned travellers who visit Australia each year tend to come back from their travels and are already booking their next year’s trip so be sure to be one step ahead and beat the last minute rush. Also, you’ll find flight sales are at their most competitive during January whilst all the airlines are competing to fill their quota’s. That being said be sure to sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with our airline flash sales which can save you a considerable amount especially if you intend to travel in Business or First class.
Airlines usually release fares twelve months in advance and its usually the best time to source the cheapest fares whilst demand is low and seats available in abundance.
