Air fares to Europe have hit a record low, with a travel agency releasing return London flights from $1259 per person.

The flights released by House of Travel are with Malaysia Airlines and nearly $100 cheaper than those released by Air China earlier this week.

The Malaysia Air deal is valid for sales to September 30 or until sold out and valid for travel between April 1 and May 31 next year. The flights, which must be booked through the House of Travel online channel, are to Heathrow via Kuala Lumpur.

The airfare war has been in full flight (mind the pun) recently: House of Travel marketing director Ken Freer said the cost of travelling to Europe on premium airlines such as Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines and Emirates has been slashed by more than 15 per cent this year.
