Cheap Jetstar Airways flights



Qantas’ answer to Virgin Australia's assault on airfare prices, Jetstar is known for its cut-rate deals. The carrier prides itself on bringing the joys of international travel to those previously unable to afford it, enabling the holiday budget to stretch further and longer. 

Since its inception in 2004, Jetstar has become a major player in the Asia Pacific region. The company has quadrupled in size in that time and is expected to keep expanding over the coming years. Based at Melbourne airport, Jetstar carries passengers all over Australia and to a growing list of international destinations.  
The company is in the process of developing Darwin airport into a new international base, and offers over 1900 flights a week to 15 countries, including New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam. Soon, the airline will extend its reach to China and India, as well as Athens, Brussels, Rome and Milan. 
Although the airline has traditionally promoted itself as a no-frills carrier, flying with Jetstar can have its perks. Its in-flight entertainment is on the pulse; the company quickly caught on to consumers’ enthusiasm for the iPad and decided to incorporate the device into its entertainment system. Following a successful trial in June 2010, Jetstar has announced it will roll out iPads on all domestic flights by Christmas. 
For those willing to pay a premium for a more comfortable flight, the StarClass ticket delivers extra legroom in one of 38 spacious leather seats aboard all A330-200 aircraft. The cabin layout is similar to Qantas’ domestic Business Class or International premium economy. The all-inclusive StarClass service comprises food and beverages, in-flight entertainment, access to the International Qantas Club and extra baggage allowance of 30 kg. The first Australian airline to allow its customers to select their seats at the time of booking, Jetstar still offers reserved seating on all routes.

Plus and Max bundles

For bookings made from 5th July 2011, Plus and Max bundles include a hot meal in flight on most international flights operated by Jetstar. Depending on sector length passengers will receive a Main Meal or a Main Meal + a Light Meal. Passengers will receive one hot and one cold non alcoholic drink with each meal service. Beer, wine and spirits are not included, and can be purchased separately. 


Meals are not included on flights from Australia to/from New Zealand or to/from Nadi (Fiji).


For bookings made from 31 August 2011 that are travelling from 12 September 2011, Plus and Max bundles include a meal on all flights operated by Jetstar Asia. For Jetstar Asia flights to/from Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Medan passengers will receive a Light Meal and 1 cold non-alcoholic drink.  For Jetstar Asia flights to/from all other destinations, passengers will receive a Main Meal and 1 cold non-alcoholic drink and 1 hot drink.

Meals are not included in Plus or Max bundles for domestic flights or flights operated by Jetstar Pacific. Food and beverages are not included in Starter fares but can be purchased on board or pre-purchased on for selected international flights.


Starter fares and Plus and Max bundles do not include a checked baggage allowance. You can purchase a checked baggage allowance of between 15kg and 40kg per passenger when booking your fare. Alternatively, for a higher fee, you can add a checked baggage allowance after completing your booking through the "manage booking" tab on the home page or the Jetstar Call Centre. If you require a baggage allowance, we strongly recommend that you add a checked baggage allowance option before proceeding to the airport, as fees at the airports are higher than through or the Jetstar Call Centre.

Carry-on baggage limits, including size, are strictly applied. 

Lounge Access

Business Max passengers receive complimentary access to the Qantas Club and Jetstar partner lounges when they are seated in the Business cabin on their next onward flight that day. Qantas Club members may access the Qantas Club when their next onward flight that day is on a Jetstar (JQ), Jetstar Asia (3K) or Valuair (VF) flight.
