The industry has grown in the last decade and the outbound flight service is one of the best-performing segments.

Jetstar has added flights to its regional service from Perth and Brisbane to Darwin and Darwin to Hobart. “
So, it’s a very good opportunity to be a part of our outbound services, especially in regional Australia.”
Jetstar has added flights to its regional service from Perth and Brisbane to Darwin and Darwin to Hobart.
Jetstar is offering an upgraded version of its regional flights that include a business class seat, which costs $250 extra and the option to upgrade to a first class ticket for $330.
A first class flight to Darwin is now available for just $150, up from $150.
“The cost of the first class seat is cheaper than a first and a business round trip, so that’s really exciting,” Mr Gough said.
JetStar Australia says it’s expanding its services from Darwin to other major cities in Western Australia and Tasmania.
The airline’s first class and business class tickets are available on its regional services in Darwin and Hobart for just a few dollars more than first class.
Auckland, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth are among the cities where Jetstar offers a first-class seat for just three dollars more, while Brisbane and Hobast are offering $200 more for a business and $400 for a first.
Jetstars regional flights are offered to customers in Perth, Darwin and Tasmania from $175 for the business class and $150 for the first.
It’s also offering an upgrade to the regional flight for a further $200.
Jet Star says it will continue to expand its regional flight services and increase the number of flights.
“Our regional service is growing in the region and we want to keep expanding it to more destinations,” Mr Bower said.
“We’re very pleased with the response we’ve had from customers, and we are very committed to continuing to improve and expand our services to all of our customers in regional areas.”
