Just a quick post today, but it was only 6 years ago that Qantas subsidiary Jetstar entered the skies here in New Zealand with cheap no-frills fares. Even though people do like to complain about them, any competition is always good competition and in the majority of instances, you do get a cheap fare to get from A to B.

Jetstar_logoTo celebrate Jetstar’s 6th Birthday, they are offering ‘Take a friend for free’/’2 for 1’ fares between various locations domestically in NZ (both ways) and to Australia (one way and direct flights only).

The sale is only for the next 48 hours (finishes 23:59 on Wednesday 10 June 2015) so get in quick!

As usually is the case with Jetstar, remember checked baggage is not included as part of the sale (these are starter fares) and is an additional ‘add on’ for a fee. There are also booking fees unless paying by direct deposit / POLi, or voucher for bookings through jetstar.com.
For all other bookings, a Booking and Service Fee of $5 per passenger per domestic flight and $8 – $12.50 per passenger per international flight applies.
