China Eastern $588 LAX to Bali and under $900 to Perth Australia

China Eastern has a great deal for travel from Los Angeles LAX to Bali, Indonesia Denpasar airport DPS. There are only a few departure dates with the $588 fare for travel with Sep 8 and Oct 11, 13, 14. There are more choices in available dates for return flights.

China Eastern Airlines Los Angeles LAX – Shanghai PVG – Denpasar DPS

$587.80 Tuesday October 13 – Wednesday October 21

LAX-DPS $588 Oct 15

This itinerary includes a full 24 hours overnight layover in Shanghai.

This is about $100 lower than the lowest fares I have seen for this route in 2015.

Cheap tickets to Australia

You might not get miles for these flights, but besides Bali, this is a low priced flight for travel onward to Australia.

Australia is rarely under $1,000 round trip. Flights from the USA to Perth, Western Australia are frequently over $1,500 round trip.

One strategy for lower airfare to Australia is getting a round trip flight starting in southeast Asia. This is an itinerary that can require a lot of time.

Here is an example of using the low China Eastern $588 round trip LAX-DPS fare with another round trip ticket from Bali to Perth, Australia.

China Eastern Airlines Los Angeles LAX – Shanghai PVG – Denpasar DPS

$587.80 Tuesday September 8 – Wednesday October 21

LAX-DPS $588 China Eastern

This itinerary includes an overnight in Shanghai with arrival in Bali on Friday September 11. Assume you stay one week in Bali and then fly to Perth, Australia for a month.

Tiger Air Denpasar DPS – Singapore SIN –  Perth PER, Australia

$301.81  Friday September 18 – Saturday October 17

DPS-PER $302 Tiger Air

DPS-PER Tiger Air itinerary

This itinerary includes 23 hours in Singapore on the outbound and an overnight with half-day in Singapore on the inbound flights back to Bali.

Los Angeles to Perth Australia = $890 round trip.

This is the kind of airfare deal you can find for Australia if you have time to travel. Scoot and Tiger Air will take you from Bali DPS to Sydney for as low as $416 round trip.

Australia airfare is more affordable than you might think. These ticket combinations also provide an opportunity to day tour Shanghai and Singapore during a Bali and Australia trip.
