Despite a short lockdown in Brisbane earlier in the week, things are looking up for Australia’s domestic aviation & tourism industry with 800,000 half-price domestic flights going on sale last Thursday. It’s all part of the federal government’s push to get more Australians to holiday at home this year.

In Episode 57 of the AFF on Air podcast, find out how to book one of the discounted flights to 15 Australian regional destinations, and what catches to look out for.

This episode also features an interview with Sam Heathfield (a.k.a. support and samh004 on the Australian Frequent Flyer forum), who is responsible for AFF member support and does a lot of work at AFF behind the scenes.

Plus, Matt explains what to do with expiring Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles, how to get more than 20,000 Qantas points and a case of delicious red wine for $345, and hear all the latest Australian airline & frequent flyer news.
