Jetstar has today announced it will launch new flights between the Gold Coast and Hobart in December, providing the only direct link between one of Queensland’s most popular holiday destinations and Tasmania.

The announcement follows confirmation that Tasmania’s borders will be open to most states from 26 October.

The new flights will be available at jetstar.com from 11 am (AEDT) today, with a 24-hour flash sale starting from noon (AEDT).

From 1 December, Jetstar will operate three return services a week from the Gold Coast to Hobart with an Airbus A320, providing more than 1,200 seats between the two cities each week.

Jetstar will also increase frequencies on its existing Tasmanian routes, including five weekly services between Hobart and Adelaide; seven between Hobart and Brisbane; and six between Launceston and Brisbane.

Once restrictions are lifted on travel to NSW, Jetstar plan to operate up to 21 weekly services between Hobart and Sydney from November, and Qantas will reintroduce services between Sydney and Hobart with daily flights, beginning as early as 30 October (subject to Tasmanian government decisions).

“It’s great help to be able to reconnect family and friends and give more people the opportunity for a holiday after what has been tough period for many.”

Gareth Evans, Jetstar Group CEO

To celebrate the re-introduction of the route (this will be the first time Jetstar operates flights between Gold Coast and Hobart since 2013), the airline will launch a 24-hour sale at midday today which will include 1,500 fares from $89^.

Sale fares will be available for different travel periods ranging from early December through to June 2021.
