Jetstar is offering flights between Victoria and NSW for as little as $20 once the states reopen.

The 24-hour flash sale kicked off at 5pm today, to coincide with the Victorian Government’s plan to ease border restrictions for fully vaccinated people from November 5.

Jetstar is offering fares from $20 one-way between Melbourne and Sydney, Newcastle and Byron Bay, and from Avalon to Sydney.

More than 100,000 travel exemptions were granted for Australians wanting to leave the country during the pandemic.

Qantas flights start at $99 each way. It includes trips from Melbourne to Sydney as well as sale fares across six regional routes between Victoria and NSW.

The Qantas Group is also offering a $20 voucher for full vaccinated travellers flying on Jetstar or Qantas, which can be used on these flights.

More than a dozen venues across Byron Bay and the wider Northern Rivers area have been listed as close contact exposure sites.

There is also an option for travellers to change their travel date if Victoria’s road map is delayed or they are unable to fly on a certain.

“As Victoria and New South Wales approach the 80 per cent double vaccination target, and travel between the two states looks set to reopen, we know there will be many people wanting to plan a well-earned holiday or visit loved ones,” Jetstar Group CEO Gareth Evans said.

“With Jetstar fares as low as $20, we expect these seats to be snapped up quickly, helping to revive the tourism industry and support local businesses, as well as get more of our people back to work.”

The below routes are included in the sale:

  • Jetstar Melbourne – Sydney
  • Jetstar Melbourne – Byron Bay (Ballina)
  • Jetstar Melbourne – Newcastle
  • Jetstar Avalon – Sydney
  • Qantas Melbourne – Sydney
  • Qantas Melbourne – Newcastle
  • Qantas Melbourne – Coffs Harbour
  • Qantas Melbourne – Byron Bay (Ballina) on sale from tomorrow
  • Qantas Melbourne – Merimbula
  • Qantas Bendigo – Sydney
  • Qantas Mildura – Sydney

Yesterday Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced the state’s pathway out of lockdown but it has been critiqued as not going far enough.

The four-step plan hinges on vaccination rates, with Melburnians able to participate in outdoor recreational activities like golf and cricket once Victoria hits the milestone of 80 per cent of the eligible population receiving their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.That milestone is expected to be reached about September 26.
