Would you step onto a plane without knowing where you’re going until you land? QANTAS has brought back mystery flights and people are frothing. 


With international travel still barely a blip on the horizon and even interstate travel feeling a little risky, QANTAS is embracing the uncertainty of travel in the time of COVID by bringing back the popular ‘mystery flights‘ of the 1990s. 

The premise? Pay an all-inclusive fee for a flight from a major Australian city, turn up to the airport, get on the plane, and find out where you are when you touchdown. 

The mystery flights depart from Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, and jet set to mystery regional destinations around the country. The first three flights went on sale last week and sold out in just 15 minutes. 

The $737 ticket (or $1579 if you’re going Business Class) includes an activity at your destination that showcases the region, a ‘special lunch’, inflight food and drinks, a goodie bag, and a return flight home that evening of course. 

Passengers are given a vague idea of what type of destination to expect and what to pack, but the rest, is a mystery. 

Would you take a chance on a pre-planned day trip?
