We don’t often cover long haul Economy Class sales here on TFM, but as Australia and New Zealand are two of the more expensive destinations to fly to from the US, we thought that we’d mention the 1-day sale that Qantas has announced in which it’s offering flyers a $250 discount.

The Qantas ‘Leap Day’ sale

Book an Economy Class fare from the US to Australia or New Zealand by 23:59 PST on 29 February 2024 using the promo code LEAPDAY, and get $250 off the base fare if you’re traveling between 1 March and 28 June or 24 July and 5 December 2024.

This offer is only valid on roundtrip bookings for Qantas marketed and operated flights, so one way fares will not be discounted nor will American Airlines codeshares.

Key Terms

  • US$250 off applies to the base fare only and does not include taxes, fees and carrier charges.
  • An eligible fare is defined as being a Qantas operated and marketed round trip flights, flying from the US to Australia or New Zealand.

  • Bookings made are applicable for travel from now to 28 June 2024 or from 24 July to 5 December 2024.
  • Blackout periods include 29 June through 23 July 2024.
  • Promo code LEAPDAY to be entered in the ‘have a promo code?’ box on the flight search page or on the payment page for a US$250 discount on the base fare, per passenger (excluding infants).
  • Discount is valid on round trip flights only.
  • This discount cannot be redeemed with ‘Travel Credits’ or ‘Travel Pass’, Classic Flight Reward fares or Points Plus Pay fares and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
