$149 flights to Japan the best news ever
It's the fastest growing holiday destination for Australians this year. And now Jetstar has made it even cheaper, to get there with its latest sale offering half-price flights as part of its return for free offer.
Fares start from $299 from Cairns to Tokyo - which factoring in the free return flight, equates to a fare of $149.50 each way.
Return flights to Tokyo (Narita) start from $329 from the Gold Coast, $343 from Sydney, $348 from Brisbane and $375 from Melbourne.
Return flights to Osaka start from $299 from Cairns, $404 from Sydney and $424 from Adelaide.
Flights are for selected dates between 13 May 2019 - 26 June 2019.
The airline's return for free offer runs until 11.59pm (AEST) Sunday 7 October 2018.
New research has shown a 170 per cent growth in trips to Japan by Australians over the last five years, with travel agents reporting more bookings to the Land of the Rising Sun than long-time Aussie favourites, Bali or Thailand.
The data, collected by the Japan National Tourism Organisation, is set to only get bigger with tourist numbers set to double for the 2019 Rugby World Cup and 2020 Olympic Games.
"Japan's strength and appeal as a travel destination lies in our difference - we can offer experiences that can't be found anywhere else in the world, like eating yakitori in a laneway bar and chatting with locals, soaking in a natural hot-spring with a view of Mt Fuji or even hiking along an ancient trail and visiting beautifully preserved post-towns (places where travellers could rest on their journey in the 1600s)," said Kana Wakabayashi, executive director of the Japan National Tourism Organisation in Sydney.
