Holy shit, you guys, Jetstar is running one of its boonta sales again where you can fly overseas and return for free. This time the destination is Japan… so you know what to do. Book, you book the damn flight.

Jetstar is slinging flights to Tokyo (Narita airport) and Osaka (Kansai airport), via Cairns. If you’re wary about the transfer / just don’t like transfers, I copped the same deal last year and the transfer wasn’t even a struggle.

Fares kick off from $269. Not a joke.

Christ alive.

Although, those flights jet off direct from Cairns. Flights from Melbourne, for example, will set you back from $458. That’s still pretty damn good.

Dates run from March 2020 through to March 2021. If you haven’t booked this deal with Jetstar before, remember to select a $0 return flight when booking.

IMPORTANT: The offer ends Monday, 3 February at 11:59pm AEDT unless sold out prior. Not to alarm you, but that’s bloody soon. Today is the 30th of January, so you have four days to alert the group chat, figure out how much leave you have, suss out dates, and book. Or you can just say, “fuck it”, and book the flights spontaneously. Treat yourself!

A) You’d be able to escape winter and B) You could go to the Olympics, which runs from Friday, 24 July to Sunday, 9 August. Not to mention, Super Nintendo World opens this year in Osaka. Universal Studios Japan announced the highly-anticipated addition to its theme park opens ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. We don’t have an exact date yet, but we’ll keep you updated.

I could honestly go on about all the good shit you could do across Japan, but I’ll leave that up to you good folk.

You can suss out all the details on the Jetstar website right HERE.

Happy flighting.
