Jetstar Celebrates Twelve Years In New Zealand’s Skies

Tomorrow marks twelve years of Jetstar flying domestically in New Zealand and to celebrate, the low fares airline will be giving away $5,000 worth of flight vouchers by turning one of Auckland’s busiest train stations into a plane terminal.

From 6am, Aucklanders will be able to ‘catch’ Jetstar flights by scanning QR codes on planes flying across digital screens at Newmarket Station, with the chance to win Jetstar flight vouchers from $50 to $500.

The giveaway is being run in conjunction with Jetstar’s Birthday Sale which will begin on Thursday morning and goes until Sunday evening, with domestic and Trans-Tasman routes on offer.

Jetstar Group CEO, Gareth Evans, said: “For the last 12 years we’ve offered low fares domestic travel to New Zealand, helping more Kiwis and visitors from around the world experience all that the country has to offer.
