    Jetstar launches its popular ‘return for free’ sale on domestic flights with prices as low as $65

    Jetstar launches its popular ‘return for free’ sale on domestic flights to Uluru and Hamilton Island with prices as low as $65 – but with state borders shut off again, where can you actually go?

    • Jetstar’s ‘return for free’ sale on domestic flights will be launched 3pm Tuesday
    • 400,000 return trips will be available across 51 of Jetstar’s domestic routes
    • Travel period is from February 2021 with all state and territory borders to open
    • Destinations include Gold Coast, Sydney, Uluru, Hamilton Island and Darwin

    Australians desperate for a long-overdue holiday will need to be quick to snap up a bargain in what is being hailed the biggest airfare sale of the year.

    Jetstar has joined forces with Tourism Australia to launch its popular ‘return for free’ sale on domestic flights.

    From 3pm Tuesday, 400,000 return trips will be available across 51 of Jetstar’s domestic routes, with one-way fares starting from $65 with the return flight free. 

    But with borders between every state in Australia closed off to its neighbours – or open under strict conditions – many are questioning whether any of the flights will be able to go ahead.

    They will, says Jetstar, so long as borders are relaxed by February 2021 – when the travel period for the discounted flights begins.

     Jetstar flights to some of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations including the Gold Coast (pictured) are being heavily discounted in the the biggest airfare sale of the year

    The deals from the budget airline include some of Australia’s favourite holiday destinations, such as the Gold Coast, Sydney, Uluru, Hamilton Island, Cairns and Hobart. 

    Prices from Melbourne’s Avalon Airport to Sydney return start from $65.

    Queenslanders pining for a much-anticipated reunion with loved ones in Sydney can snap a deal as low at $92 from Brisbane or $96 from the Sunshine Coast.

    In other hot deals, Sydneysiders can book a Hamilton Island getaway from $152, Melburnians can see iconic landmark Uluru from$165, while Tasmanians can escape to Sydney for as little as $89 return from Launceston. 

    Jetstar’s online sale begins 3pm Tuesday and continues until 11.59pm on November 19. 

    ‘As the only low fares carrier in Australia, we play a key role driving tourism and reviving an industry which has been significantly impacted by COVID-19,’ Jetstar Group chief executive Gareth Evans said in a statement.

    ‘We expect the sale to be very popular, particularly for families keen to reconnect with loved ones after months apart, as well as those looking to take a well-earned break.’

    ‘We know there is a strong pent-up demand for domestic travel and we’re confident our low fares will help increase visitors and give a boost to local tourism operators across Australia.’

    The sale coincides with Tourism Australia’s campaign which encourages travellers to get out and explore Australia while international borders remain shut. 

    Jetstar’s last sale in June saw 70,000 fares sold in five hours, which was 40 per cent above the normal rate of bookings.

    There is hope both Qantas and Jetstar will return to 60 per cent capacity of its pre-COVID domestic schedule by Christmas as more state borders reopen in the coming weeks, including NSW/Victoria on November 23.
