Qantas and Jetstar have announced discounted fares on 200,000 seats and points offers for frequent flyers, in an effort to reboot the domestic tourism industry.
Jetstar is launching a sale on 35 routes, across 15 destinations, in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland.
There are 10,000 fares for A$19 one-way on 22 routes including Melbourne to Sydney, Sydney to Gold Coast, Melbourne to Byron Bay (Ballina), Brisbane to Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) and Adelaide to Cairns.
Other sale fares include Brisbane to Mackay from A$49, Sydney to Hamilton Island from A$79 and Brisbane to Darwin from A$79. Fares are on sale on jetstar.com from 9am today and run until 23:59 (AEST) June 22, 2020 “unless sold out prior”.
Jetstar will be offering sale fares to/from Western Australia and Tasmania following confirmation of the dates that borders will open up, The Qantas Group said on its website.
Qantas said it is offering its 13 million frequent flyers triple points on all flights nationwide from June 27 until October 31, 2020. The triple point sale is available on qantas.com now and runs until June 24, 2020.
Both airlines are offering customers greater flexibility when they book, with the ability to change the date of their flight once, without paying a change fee. Qantas said customers will have to cover any fare increase (if relevant) for the new booking.
The Qantas Group said earlier this month that it will increase domestic and regional flights for June and July as travel restrictions within Australia begin to ease. The additional services will see capacity increase from five per cent of pre-Coronavirus levels, to 15 per cent by the end of June, said Qantas
