Jetstar Is Launching a Big Sale on Domestic and Trans-Tasman Flights with Fares From $33
More than 25,000 cheap fares are available, with flights to Aussie starting from $159.
While plenty about taking a holiday has changed over the past year or so, flight sales keep coming — and Kiwis keep snapping up tickets. Unsurprisingly, we're all keen to travel when and where we can in these pandemic-afflicted times. And if you're constantly thinking about your next getaway, Jetstar is dropping yet another batch of cheap fares.
The Limited Time Only sale will kick off at 9am on Friday, April 23. As the name suggests, it's only on offer for a brief period. You'll need to nab your discounted tickets before 11.59pm NZT on Monday, April 26, although fares might sell out earlier.
In the sale, you'll find cheap flights across a heap routes from destinations right across the country. That's a regular part of these specials, so there are no surprises there. But this time, because the trans-Tasman bubble is open and zooming across the ditch is now possible — and allowed — you can also pick up discounted tickets to Australia.
Domestically, fares start at $33 for flights from Auckland to Christchurch, with Aucklanders also able to head to Dunedin from $45 and Queenstown from $55. For flights to Aus, tickets kick off at $159, which'll get you from Wellington to the Gold Coast. From Auckland, it'll cost you $175 to Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.
Tickets in the sale are for trips from May 2021–January 2022, with exact dates varying in each region. And there are a few caveats, as is always the case. The discounted flights are one way, and they don't include checked baggage — so you'll need to travel super light, or pay extra to take a suitcase.
And, as always, keeping an eye on both Australian and interstate border requirements is recommended.
To promote the sale, Jetstar has also commissioned three large-scale artworks, all emblazoned with the words "available for a limited time only". One 90-metre-long piece by artist Edward popped up in the sand along the Great Ocean Road, another took over a Sydney rooftop and a third also got sandy at Piha Beach in Auckland.
Jetstar's Limited Time Only sale runs from 9am NZT on Friday, April 23 till 11.59pm NZT on Monday, April 26, or until sold out.
