Jetstar resumes popular seasonal service between Brisbane and Uluru
Jetstar is bringing back great low fares between Brisbane and Uluru, with its four-month seasonal service taking off again from tomorrow.
Operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft, the three per week service will create more than 18,000 seats between Brisbane and Uluru over the season.
Jetstar will be the only airline offering direct flights between Brisbane and Uluru on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
The service will operate from Thursday 22 June 2023 until Saturday 28 October, in partnership with Northern Territory tourism provider, Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia.
Jetstar is the largest carrier to Uluru, operating up to 26 flights a week between Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
The airline also operates 56 flights a week between Darwin and six domestic and international destinations.
This year, Jetstar is expected to carry close to half a million passengers to and from the Northern Territory.
Jetstar Group CEO, Stephanie Tully, said the seasonal service will provide a significant tourism boost to the Northern Territory and also southeast Queensland.
“We’ve seen strong demand for flights between Brisbane and Uluru since launching the route in 2018 and we expect demand to be even higher in 2023,” Ms Tully said.
"With one-way fares starting from just $168, the direct flight will give travellers from Queensland and those connecting into Brisbane from our international services, a unique opportunity to explore the heart of the continent and all it has to offer.
“We extend our thanks to Voyages for their continued support.”
Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia CEO, Matt Cameron-Smith, said the resumption of the service was welcome news for travellers interested in visiting the spiritual heart of Australia.
“Indigenous tourism is increasingly important to domestic and international travellers and the restart of this service from Brisbane will provide visitors with direct access to one of the world’s most ancient and fascinating cultures,” said Mr. Cameron-Smith.
“It also couldn’t come at a better time following the recent global launch of Wintjiri Wiru, which combines ancient Anangu storytelling with state-of-the-art drone, laser and light projection technology.”
“It is the first time an experience of this magnitude has been performed on a regular basis anywhere in the world.”
