The increased schedule will see Jetstar flying more than 100 return flights per week across six domestic routes, including the resumption of services between Wellington and Queenstown catching the peak of the winter season.

Jetstar plans to continue to operate at 90 per cent capacity until at least the end of October and will closely monitor demand to determine our schedule from November 2020 onwards. 

Customers with bookings on the remaining 10 per cent of flights until the end oc October have been contacted and offered an alternative same day flight, of a refund if an alternative flight is not available withing 3 hours of the original departure time.

Fly Flexible 

Last Updated: 23/06/2020 03:47 AM

One free date change for domestic travel

If you book flights through between 8 and 30 June 2020, we’ll waive the change fee one time if you decide to change the date of your travel. When you’re ready to rebook, you’ll need to cover any Fare Difference in your new booking. This offer applies for travel between 1 July and 31 October 2020 on any Jetstar Airways (JQ) domestic flights within New Zealand. If you have both a domestic and international flight on your itinerary, a Change Fee will apply.

Greater flexibility when using credit vouchers

Following customer feedback, we’ve recently improved our travel vouchers. From Monday 15 June, new and existing unused travel vouchers issued due to COVID-19 impact on travel by Jetstar Airways (JQ), Jetstar Asia (3K) and Jetstar Japan (GK), will become multi-use vouchers.

These multi-use vouchers can be used across multiple bookings, where any outstanding credit can be used towards another. Customers can check on their credit by visiting the voucher balance portal.

All other credit vouchers issued for reasons not listed above will be single use only. Customers should refer to the full Terms and Conditions.

We also recently extended our voucher expiry dates, giving customers 12 months to redeem a voucher and book any available flight.

Our flights are generally made available around 12 months in advance, so customers will have about two years to travel. As per the existing arrangements, Jetstar customers will need to pay any Fare Difference if the new bookings cost more than the value of their travel voucher.

If you booked through a travel agent or third party websites (e.g. House of Travel) you will need to contact them directly.
