Jetstar launches Brisbane-Uluru route with $89 flights
Connecting the coast to the Red Centre on a budget.
Low-cost carrier Jetstar has announced it's set to fly direct between Brisbane and Uluru from 3 August. This will make it the first budget airline to connect the two cities allowing for easier and cheaper access to Uluru – particularly for international travellers flying into the Queensland capital.
The service is penned to operate three times weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, subject to approval. Flight times from Brisbane are also anticipated to be scheduled to connect well with its international arrivals, allowing for a seamless connection to the natural Australian icon.
To celebrate the launch of the new route, Jetstar is hosting a short sale on initial flights priced at $89 each way.
These are available for travel dates 3 August - 19 September 2018, 17 October - 12 December 2018 and 9-30 January 2019. While these exclude the peak holidays, they do include one of the most Australian days of the year, AKA Australia Day, which is a welcome treat in 2019 as it falls on Saturday giving travellers a 3-day long-weekend with the public holiday on Monday (28 January).
You can book your flight now through Skyscanner until midnight 13 April when the sale ends.
Outside of the sale, flights between Brisbane and Uluru are priced from $169 each way, according to the Jetstar website. With a saving of almost 50%, why wouldn't you?
