Jetstar launches dirt cheap ‘return for free’ sale, so pack ya bags!

Desperate for a holiday and have a tonne of annual leave up your sleeve? Well today is your lucky day my friend!

Jetstar has joined forces with Tourism Australia to launch what’s being described as “the biggest airfare sale of the year” and oh boy do we deserve this.

The airline giant’s popular “Return for Free” sale went live at 4.00pm this afternoon, with 400,000 return trips across 51 of Jetstar’s domestic routes up for grabs.


Some of the fares start from just $65 return, and include popular destinations such as the Gold Coast, Cairns, Hobart, Uluru and Hamilton Island.

Jetstar Group CEO Gareth Evans said they’re slinging the cheap flights in a bid to boost domestic tourism and help reunite family and friends after months of being apart.

“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,” Mr Evans said.

“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 only catch is that the travel periods are from February 2021, with hopes border restrictions across the country will be relaxed by then.

It comes just days after Virgin Australia launched its massive flight sale, with a heap of flights across the country starting at $75.

But you better be quick, the Virgin sale ends November 20, while the cheap Jetstar flights are only on offer until November 19, unless sold out prior!

Catchya on the tarmac!
