Jetstar’s fly to Japan, return for free sale has returned

Posted: 3 October 2018 10:03 am

Take off to the Land of the Rising Sun from $316 return.

Jetstar's famous return for free sale is back bringing us flights to Japan for as low as $316 return.

If you haven't come across this sale before, how it works is that you pay for your flight out and pay nothing for your flight back. That's right $0. Nada. Nix.

Flights are available to Tokyo and Osaka with the cheapest departing Cairns.

Travel is from 13 May to 26 June 2019, and while the sale ends at midnight 7 October, if previous sales are anything to go by, flights are already starting to sell out.

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. While we've seen return for free flights as low as $289, those were during less desirable autumn and winter dates. And for an extra $27, it's not too much extra to pay for the privilege of sunshine and the possibility of cherry blossoms.
  • Airline: Good. Jetstar is a low-cost carrier, though it is regarded as one of the best in the Asia/Pacific. Fares are seat only. There is a fee for checked luggage, meals and entertainment.
  • Frequent Flyer Points: None. As these are sale fares, you won't accrue frequent flyer points for your journey.
  • Travel time: Good. Flights from Cairns are direct; however, all other flights include a layover which can be cumbersome.
  • Weather: Good. You'll be flying just after peak cherry blossom season and just before summer. It might be shoulder season, but if you cross all your fingers and toes you could catch late cherry blossoms.

This Jetstar return for free sale won't last for long, guaranteed!
