Jetstar to give out hundreds of dollars in flight vouchers at busiest train stations

Budget airline Jetstar will throw Australia’s busiest commuter locations into chaos on Tuesday, with the airline doing a countrywide ‘birthday takeover’ and turning selected train stations into airports.

The airline, which will be celebrating its 17th birthday, will turn selected screens at both Central station in Sydney, and Flinders Station in Melbourne into flight paths.

For 24 hours from 6am, commuters will have the opportunity to snap and scan QR codes on certain screens throughout both airports, with some codes redeemable for Jetstar flight vouchers.

Commuters can ‘catch the JQ17’ plane as it flies across the ‘big screen’ at each station – redeeming flights that span $50-$500.

Jetstar said close to one million Australian commuters will come across the campaign tomorrow, and have the opportunity to partake in the celebration but only 70 commuters across both cities will win the price pool of up to $10k.

The latest sale comes amid an ongoing domestic travel price war between airlines.

Last month, Jetstar dropped fares from just $60 after the airline relaunched its ‘Return for Free’ birthday sale

The low-budget arm of the Qantas group revealed its renowned sale would make a comeback as a renewed push to reignite domestic travel.

At the time of the sale, there were 340,000 seats available for as little as $55 for a return fare.

The sale came a day after Jetstar unveiled $30 flights between Sydney and Melbourne in response to moves by rivals Regional Express and Virgin Australia, which also revealed $39 fares between the Victorian and NSW capitals.

The price war between Sydney and Melbourne was initially sparked by Rex, which announced the sale first to boost travel numbers on the major route.
