Remember those promised half-price flights — these ones the Australia Government is flinging? Well it kicked off today with Jetstar, Virgin and Qantas all slinging half-price flights to various locations needing a little love around Australia.

Qantas and Jetstar have released half-price fares to 15 destinations as part of the ‘Half Off Flights – Full on Holiday’ program. That includes Cairns, Townsville, Whitsunday Coast/ Hamilton Island, Sunshine Coast, Darwin, Alice Springs, Hobart, Launceston, Devonport, Broome, Avalon, Merimbula, Adelaide, Kangaroo Island and the Gold Coast.

All places that were hit hardest by international border closures, and all places I absolutely want to be right now instead of at a desk.

“While the Brisbane lockdown has unfortunately impacted some Easter holiday plans, we know this is a temporary setback and the vaccine rollout will help make border restrictions a thing of the past,” said Qantas Domestic and International CEO Andrew David in a statement.

“With this sale, now is a great time to book your holidays and weekends away for the rest of the year. Almost every destination that Qantas and Jetstar fly to is on sale, including plenty of chances to grab half-price fares as part of the Government’s tourism stimulus package”.

Meanwhile, Virgin is putting 260,000 half-priced seats on sale across nine regions and twenty-five destinations. You’re looking at fares like Melbourne to Adelaide for $69, Sydney to Hamilton Island for $103 and Brisvegas to Darwin for $140. Remembering Virgin includes checked baggage, this is pretty sweet.

If you think about it, a flight to somewhere new is probably the best kind of Easter treat — except for maybe these.
