Qantas is releasing a limited number of flight tickets from the US to Australia for just US$100 each way.

To celebrate its 100th birthday, the national carrier will release US$100 (AU$147) one-way tickets from the United States to Australia every day from Monday (18 November) through to Thursday (21 November).

However, customers will have to move very quick to nab the deal: there are only 100 of these tickets available each day that they drop at 9am AEDT.

A different route goes on sale every day until Thursday. Today (Tuesday 19 November), the US$100 flights will be from San Francisco to Melbourne or Brisbane.

The departure cities rotate between Qantas’ gateway cities in the US, which include Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, and San Francisco.

Wednesday and Thursday’s destinations have not yet been revealed and will be announced on the morning of the sale.

Customers should also know that the fares have to be bought as part of a round-trip that originates from the US and returns back to the US.

The fares are also economy class and cannot be upgraded.

Your return flights will have to fall between 20 March-15 April, 17 June-11 July, and 11-28 September next year.

But if you miss out on the cheap fares, Qantas is slashing round-trip flights from LA to Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane to US$699.
