Jetstar offers $35 seats in fightback against Tigerair birthday sale

Latest airline sale includes 66 routes at under $100.

The war between budget airlines for sales continues. Hot on the heels of Tigerair's heavily discounted seats to celebrate its 20 millionth passenger, Jetstar has fired back with its own "flash sale" offering discounted seats.

While there aren't any deals quite as cheap as Tigerair's $20 seats, you can pick up some $35 fares on key routes, and there are plenty of deals where the basic one-way price is $100 or less. The fares are for flights from July to September, which is sooner than the rival Tigerair deals, which are largely for early 2017.

The sale runs through until 11:59pm AEST on 8 June, so you'll need to get in quick if you fancy one of these fares. As with any discount airline sale, be sure to factor in the cost of credit card surcharges. Jetstar charges $8.50 per leg if you don't use a Jetstar mastercard or pay via POLi or direct deposit. Also remember to consider airline baggage charges, which aren't included in the base ticket price.

Tigerair and Jetstar are establishing something of a tradition of rival sales. When Jetstar staged its own birthday sale last month, Tigerair responded with an "it's not our birthday" sale.
