Which budget airlines fly from Brisbane?

Budget airlines aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. You’re expected to pay for your checked bags, seats might be a bit more cramped, meals cost extra and if you want any entertainment it’s BYO or you’ve got to fork out some more.

The good news is all these inconveniences add up to cheaper fares overall so if none of these really faze you, then consider flying Jetstar or Tigerair out of Brisbane International Airport.

Jetstar has direct flights to Adelaide, Ayers Rock, Cairns, Darwin, Denpasar, Hobart, Launceston, Mackay, Melbourne, Newcastle, Proserpine, Sydney and Townsville.

Tigerair flies direct from Brisbane to Adelaide, Cairns, Canberra, Darwin, Melbourne and Sydney.

If you’re willing to depart from a bit further down the coast at Gold Coast Airport then you can also take advantage of cheap flights to Asia with AirAsia X and Scoot.

Flights from Brisbane to Cairns

The northbound journey from Brisbane to Cairns is a mere 2 hours and 20 minutes, with all of Australia's main airlines – Jetstar, Tigerair, Qantas and Virgin – flying the route.

When deciding which airline to use for the short trip, it's important to consider a few things:

  • Jetstar and Tigerair: These carriers only include a seat and 7kg carry-on luggage in the fare. Extras like checked baggage and meals can be added when booking. Tickets on these airlines will likely carry a cheaper price.
  • Qantas and Virgin: A meal or snack, drink, checked baggage and entertainment are all included in your fare and you can also earn frequent flyer points. That said, they'll also likely be the most expensive options.

Flights from Brisbane to Melbourne

Four airlines offer direct flights from Brisbane to Melbourne: Qantas, Virgin, Jetstar and Tigerair. With a travel time of just under 2.5 hours, you might find that the budget airlines could be worth the trip to save some cash.

Consider the following when trying to choose which airline to use for this route:

  • Jetstar and Tigerair: You won't get anything else with your ticket other than a seat and a 7kg carry-on bag, but tickets on these airlines will carry a cheaper price.
  • Qantas and Virgin: Both airlines include checked bags, entertainment and an in-flight meal or snack, plus the ability to earn points for your flight. It will likely be more expensive than a budget airline.

Flights from Brisbane to Auckland

The 3.5-hour direct trip across the Tasman Sea is operated by Air New Zealand, China Airlines, Qantas and Virgin. Other airlines like LATAM and Jetstar also offer tickets for this route but these trips involve stopovers in Sydney, which adds at least three hours to your travel time. Unless there’s a sale on these routes, we’d stick to the direct flights.

Air New Zealand, China Airlines, Qantas and Virgin are full-service airlines. This means you will have everything included in the price of your ticket: checked bags, in-flight meals, drinks, entertainment and the ability to earn points.

Flights from Brisbane to Bali

The international jaunt between Brisbane and Bali takes six hours on average and three airlines offer direct flights: Jetstar, Virgin and Malindo Air.

You can also take connecting flights with airlines like Qantas (via Sydney) and Singapore Airlines (via Singapore), though this will make the journey significantly longer and usually you won’t end up saving much (or anything) on the fare.

If you're not sure which airline to take for your flight, there are a few things to consider:

  • Jetstar: Offering the cheapest tickets on the route, you’re looking at just a seat on the plane and a carry-on bag in the fare. Light travellers on a budget will be able to benefit, as you'll only need to pay for extras like checked bags when you need them.
  • Virgin and Malindo Air: Both are full-service airlines and will include a meal, drink, checked baggage and entertainment. You’ll also be able to earn frequent flyer points on your fare but can expect to pay a higher price overall.
