International Jetstar to Capital
Jetstar has flown in with two new Tasman routes to take off later this year, including its first international service from Wellington. The airline today announced it would start flying three times a week from Wellington to the Gold Coast, and from Queenstown to the Gold Coast as well. Tickets for the Wellington service will normally start at $179, and will cost $229 from Queenstown, though a special deal accompanying the announcement will sell fares for the routes from $99 and $129, respectively. The new service would launch in early December. The low-cost airline made the announcement at Wellington airport today, where it was tipped a new trans-Tasman service would be launched. Wellington Airport said this year its short-term aim was "very much about extending trans-Tasman opportunities".
