With these deals, you can get nonstop flights to Syndey for less than $1,000 from Los Angeles and San Francisco. However, if you also want to visit Fiji, you can book an extended stopover in Fiji. If you book an extended stopover from San Francisco, the tickets will be more expensive than flying out of Los Angeles.
Here are all the flights under this set of deals:
- Delta: Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Sydney Airport (SYD), starting at $898.
- Fiji: LAX to Nandi International Airport (NAN) and then to SYD, starting at $906.
- Hawaiian: San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to SYD, starting at $912 (includes a layover in Honolulu).
- Alaska and Fiji: SFO to SYD and then to NAN, starting at $1,228.
We recommend booking your flights directly on the airline’s website; direct airline reservations tend to be more reliable if your flight is delayed, canceled or experiences a booking change.
If you’re just looking to visit Sydney from Los Angeles, a Delta flight just shy of $900 round-trip is the cheapest available option on Google Flights.
For returning flights, Delta offers one that departs from Sydney at 9:25 a.m.
While this $898 fare is quite low for a flight to Sydney, it is for Delta’s basic economy class; this class can feel restrictive on long-haul flights. Delta’s basic economy does not let passengers select seats or make ticket changes. However, passengers can bring a carry-on and one checked bag at no additional cost.
Despite the restrictions, the fare is quite low. Flights to Sydney typically cost at least $1,050, according to Google Flights.
