For those looking for a short-haul flight that won’t break the budget, flights from Sydney to Auckland average 0.17¢ per kilometre whilst Melbourne to Christchurch works out to 0.16¢ per kilometre.

Perth’s love-affair with Asia continues to trump domestic locations

Travellers departing from Perth can get a better bang for their buck travelling to Kuala Lumpur (0.09¢ per kilometre), Bangkok (0.12¢ per kilometre) and Phuket (0.12¢ per kilometre) than they can to Australia’s Eastern coast.

Bali bliss for thrifty Brisbane travellers
