Featuring 9 heavily discounted routes across Australia, including Sydney-Melbourne.

Throughout the week airline wars have been raging with Rex Airlines and Virgin Australia both dropping a Sydney–Melbourne flight sale from $49.

If you thought it couldn't get better that that, it has.

That's because Jetstar has joined in the fun (or should that be war?) using its weekly Friday Flight Frenzy to ditch the dollars on Sydney–Melbourne flights down to a gobsmacking $29 each way.

The catch? They're only available for trips in the immediate future, from February until the end of March.

Don't live in either city? Don't fret. As part of the Friday Fare Frenzy there are eight other sale fares to snap up:

  • Brisbane–Whitsunday Coast from $59 each way
  • Adelaide–Sunshine Coast from $69 each way
  • Brisbane–Cairns from $79 each way
  • Adelaide–Hobart from $84 each way
  • Brisbane–Uluru from $89 each way
  • Melbourne–Uluru from $89 each way
  • Brisbane–Townsville from $95 each way
  • Melbourne–Whitsunday Coast from $139 each way

These fares are also available for February and March travel. But, as a bonus, include late April to late June dates, too. This makes them ideal for anyone living in the southern states seeking to escape winter for warmer weather.

This Friday Fare Frenzy runs from 12pm–8pm AEDT on 12 February.

Our advice? Get in right at midday by visiting KAYAK where you can compare dates and prices to save big.

How good are these Jetstar Friday Fare Frenzy fares?

  • Price: Great. These are by far the cheapest Sydney–Melbourne fares on sale right now. In comparison both Rex Airlines and Virgin Australia are selling seats on the same route for $20 more each way.
  • Flexibility: OK. Jetstar's FareCredit option lets you cancel for a credit note valid for three years. However, this is at a cost. Comparatively, Rex, Virgin Australia and Qantas all let you change flights fee-free for flights taking off into 2022, giving them an edge with flexibility.
  • Airline: OK. Jetstar is a budget airline and the prices mentioned above are for your seat and carry-on luggage only. Need checked luggage, extra legroom and meals? You'll have to pay extra. Rex and Virgin include these in their fares, which could justify you spending the extra $20 to get on their planes instead.
  • Travel time: Great. All flights are non-stop. You can't get better than that.
  • Weather: Good. While February–March is low season across Australia, these months do offer cool autumn weather. This is perfect for city exploration, hiking pursuits and road trips.

Missed the $29 flights? Not keen on travelling in February and March? As borders reopen Jetstar is ramping up its services between Sydney and Melbourne. It currently runs 63 return flights per week between the two cities, but plans to increase that to 88 weekly returns by the end of March 2021.

Prices for flights from April onwards aren't too shabby either, starting at $39 each way.

You can also book these through KAYAK now.
