Flights To Launceston

Ever been to Hobart? Well, Launceston says, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet”!

While Tasmania’s only inland city might not be as large as its rival, this little city promises quality over quantity. Are the parks truly greener here? The architecture more elegant? The chefs more daring? The locals certainly think so. Why not find out for yourself?

Taste the world-famous wines of the Tamar Valley, see the design-focussed buildings, and join residents in jogging through beautiful Cataract Gorge. We won’t tell Hobart you’re cheating, we promise. But don’t be surprised if no other city in Australia feels quite the same after your Launceston holiday. Come ready for a game-changer!

Getting Around Launceston

Flights to Launceston Airport land just 15km south of the city. A shuttle or taxi can take you anywhere in the city. There’s also the Metro Tasmania bus system, but most people have their own rides here. If none of that sounds appealing, check out Wotif’s car hire options to get around like a local.

When You Land…

Are you on Launceston flights that land in the morning? Then start your day with an easy ride on the world’s longest single-span chairlift—right over Cataract Gorge. Touching down in the afternoon? See the famous Tasmanian Devils at the Tasmania Zoo.

If your flight lands after dark, head to Princes Square and check out the statue of Dr. William Russ Pugh, the first surgeon in the Southern Hemisphere to use general anaesthetic. Perhaps he’ll inspire you to get a good night’s rest at your Launceston accommodation!

Live Like a Local

A favourite of the locals, the Tama Island Wetlands offer a boardwalk through the wetlands, barbeques for grilling up your favourite meal and wildlife sightings left and right. Bring a camera!

Looking to whet your appetite for great deals? Wotif has cheap flights to Launceston left and right, so catch one for your next holiday. You could save big on your getaway to the absolute, hands-down, best city in Tasmania—at least, as far as the locals are concerned.

Here’s an insider tip: Sunday is typically the cheapest day to fly! Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights departing on a Sunday generally had the lowest average price, closely followed by flights on a Monday.

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Guess what? Boring old Wednesday really is the best day to score the cheapest plane tickets. Looking at flight demand on Wotif in 2019, we found that flights purchased on a Wednesday had the lowest airfares on average. Booking your plane ticket on a Sunday also seems to score pretty good deals. However, airfares purchased on a Saturday generally have a higher than average ticket value, so you might want to prepare your budget if you’re booking on a weekend.

What is the cheapest month to fly?

When comparing airfares booked through Wotif in 2019, our data shows October is one of the cheapest months to fly. On the other hand, the December holiday period can be one of the most expensive times to travel, with the highest average ticket price, so it’s best to get in early during peak periods.

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Trying to figure out how early you should book your flight? It’s possible to start comparing international airfares on Wotif up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to Wotif’s 2019 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest airfares appearing 1-3 weeks prior to travel.

How can I save money on flights?

Looking for clever ways to save on your next trip? Try mixing and matching airlines and fare types. Our data tells us, travellers who booked flights on Wotif in 2019 saved close to 55% off their airfare, when their return flights consisted of two different airlines or fare types.
