Joint service of Virgin Australia (4-star at SKYTRAX) and Royal Brunei Air (3-star) airlines is allowing to book cheap flights to Tasmania from UK where air tickets are starting at €779 (GBP674) already – connection London (LHR) – Hobart (HBA). This is really fabulous deal as the usual rate is over €500 higher and since many low-cost carriers across the Europe are connected to London this is great opportunity to visit this famous island not just for UK citizens!
*UPDATE* – looks like this rate offer to Hobart is most likely gone however it seems we are able to book even slightly cheaper air tickets to Lanceston (LST) for €774(GBP 669) – there are 3 stop-overs one the way but total transit time is even slightly lower. Booking still possible at Tripsta, sample of the booking added below, I was able to go all the way through till payment!
Travel period is from September 2013 till March 2014 that means during local Spring/Summer time, below the booking sample you may find rough description of each season to find what is the best time to visit Tasmania for you! There is currently plenty of dates available.
