Jetstar Sale

Just a heads-up about a new Jetstar ‘sale’, although it’s a bit of damp squib compared to recent deals (perhaps we’ve been a bit spoilt…). I couldn’t see too startling so I didn’t bother copying the whole schebang. Let me know if you think otherwise.

Routes:

  • Melbourne to Bangkok or Singapore (via Darwin),
  • Sydney to Vietnam or Japan, and
  • Queensland to Japan or Christchurch

Sale runs until Wednesday 21 May 2008 for travel 24 May – 24 Jun 08.

Travel just got a little more expensive

Yesterday’s budget increased the Australian departure tax to $47, making it $9 more expensive to leave the country. Not a huge increase in itself but The Age article observes

‘The Tourism and Transport Forum had calculated that even before the latest increase, up to a fifth of the cost of some tickets consisted of government taxes and charges, including an Air Services Australia levy, a meteorological services charge and, at Sydney airport, a noise levy.’

Update:

According to the ABC passport fees will also increase by 4 per cent, and visa application fees will jump by $25. Guess I’ll get around to renewing my passport sooner rather than later.

Air Asia: Gold Coast – Kuala Lumpur $137 INCLUDING taxes

Overnight Airaisa have confirmed our earlier post regarding a free flights promotion running until the 16th of May. Flights from $137 each way Gold Coast – Kuala Lumpur including taxes and charges for travel 10th of June 2008 – 30 April 2009. Interestingly, this overlaps with the expected launch of AirAsia flights to London in March 2009 and if there are startup bargains to be had it could turn out to be an EXTREMELY cheap period to travel to Europe.

Free Flights to Kuala Lumpur (?)

Both The New Straits Times and AirTravelTips are running a story about AirAsia offering “free” seats between 14th and 16th of May on routes including Gold Coast – KL for travel between 12th January to 30th April 2009. Presumably taxes and surcharges are still applicable. No word on how many tickets are being released.

I can’t find anything on AirAsia’s website or recieved any messages in my inbox, but it may well be worth keeping an eye on the site tomorrow (at least before it melts down) if you’re interested in a deal to Malaysia.

As ever, let us know in comments if you find a bargain!
