First, you will fly with Turkish Airlines on a Boeing 737 with a 2-2 configuration in the business class, and then continue to Melbourne with a technical stop in Singapore on a Turkish Airlines Boeing 787 with a 1-2-1 business class configuration. During the inbound flight, you will have a long layover at Singapore airport.

Search & Book

This deal doesn’t have an expiration deal, but seats are selling fast. A maximum stay of twelve months applies. Departures are available between February and May 2025.

You can find suitable dates using our calendar above or with the help of Google Flights. While we usually recommend booking directly on Turkish Airlines’s website, these prices are only available on Skyscanner. Although this is a very good deal, bear in mind that booking on OTAs has its downsides.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Information & Tips for Australia

Australia, also known as ‘Down Under’, is an absolute dream destination because of its distance to Europe and its beautiful countryside. But because it’s so far away, the flights are costly. Nevertheless, there are always Dealz for less than €1,000.

Best Time to Visit

Australia is a vast country with different climate zones. Summers (November to February) are hot and mostly dry, winters (June to September) are relatively mild.

    The flights SIN to MEL also show(ed) up on miles&more as “first class” awards and then booked into Economy so this is far more interesting 😉
    I’m a bit confused about the “680 Points on Miles&More”. Should it not be 880 where IST-SIN and SIN-MEL give 200 points each way?

    • Felix says:

      Hi Mike! You are right. We skipped the second MEL-SIN leg in our calculation, and therefore the 200 points were missing. Now it should be correct.

    • Ditmar Lange says:

      Please excuse the confusion, but the previous statement (680 points) should, in fact, be correct. As MEL-SIN and SIN-IST have the same flight number and are on the same date (either inbound or outbound for this fare to work), this counts as a single flight with a technical stop, not as 2 separate segments.
