FARE ALERT: Shanghai, Singapore, Malaysia and More from $481 Roundtrip

Airfares this year have been truly unreal. The deals are amazing, with prices I haven’t seen in at least a dozen years. These aren’t mistake fares, these are fares that pop up regularly. But they don’t last long, so it’s important to pay attention.

Here are 4 fantastic fares available right now:

  • Airfare Spot: Hainan $481 Chicago – Shanghai Roundtrip available for outbound travel September through November.

  • The Flight Deal: ANA $488 Chicago – Kuala Lumpur Roundtrip oddly this requires outbound travel on October 30th.

    Petronas Towers from the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

  • The Flight Deal: Delta $588 New York – Singapore Roundtrip. This is available September through early December and January through May for Sunday through Thursday travel. Credit the miles to Alaska Airlines for 50% of flown miles (about 10,000 redeemable miles earned vs less than 2500 with Delta SkyMiles).

    Singapore Hawker Center

  • Airfare Spot: Air China $597 Washington DC – Manila Roundtrip. This is available September through November. Visit the land of shopping malls. Seriously, there’s nowhere in the world with as many shopping malls per capita, or as many malls per square foot of a city. You can off course head to the beaches..

    Cebu Island, Philippines

You’re not going to be upgrading these tickets. If I had to choose one, I’d fly ANA coach rather than the other alternatives. Plus as much as I love Singapore, I think Kuala Lumpur is an even better food city in some ways especially if you get out of downtown, there are amazing places in PJ.
