India to Sydney on Malindo air for 10-13k one way

Bengaluru, Kolkata and Kochi people, act NOW.

Malindo Air is launching its service to Sydney, Australia from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia starting August 14, 2019. This will be a one stop flight via Bali, Indonesia.

The great thing is, if you book now, you can fly all the way to Australia for just INR 10600 one way. That is cheaper than low cost airlines.

Malindo is a full service airline and for this fare you will get lots of extra benefits
-Entertainment onboard
-Meals included
-USB Charging
-Slightly more comfortable seating
-Comfort kit (pillow, blanket and earphone etc)
-Transit through a more comfortable KLIA 1 instead of KLIA2
-A remote possibility of upgrade to business class (if flight is full)

But note that being one stop flight via Bali, this will take a few hours more. Flight will be on a B737 and not a wide body aircraft other airlines use on this route.

Note that the lowest supersaver fare doesn't include checked baggage. If you need it, you have to pay another 2500 INR more to book under Economy Value, which is still a great fare.

Similarly priced tickets are available to Sydney from other cities- Cochin, Mumbai, Chennai etc- a few thousand more. Even if you've to take a domestic flight from your city to Kolkata to fly out of Kolkata it is very good deal.

At this moment I am unable to spot a similarly priced return fare from Sydney. Malindo website is not showing any return flight option, not sure why- may be they are still trying to fix the price or decide something else. You'll have to wait for sometime till Malindo opens up return flights, or book your return ticket on some other airline such as Scoot, AirAsia etc.

AirAsia has one way fare Sydney to Kolkata for about 13k, which is very good (Bags and meals extra). Entire round trip you can have for under 25k INR
Alternatively you can extend your trip to say Bali on some other airline, return to your city on Malindo
