The Love Australia sale comes after Virgin Australia’s own resurrection sale after being saved for collapse last week.
Jetstar also launched a sale of 200,000 seats to celebrate the reopening of borders across Australia following the COVID-19 crisis.
Residents of most states will be able to travel freely from July, although Victorians have been largely barred from deals due to a recent spike in business.
However, potential travelers will have to make a quick bargain. The sale ends on Friday July 10.
Other routes included in the sale include:
- Sydney to Hamilton Island: $ 179
- Brisbane to Fraser Coast: $ 109
- Sydney to Darwin: $ 219
- Sunshine Coast to Sydney: $ 129
- Hobart to Melbourne: $ 125
- Sydney to Ballina (Byron): $ 129
- Sydney to Wagga Wagga: $ 129
Rates are available for use in August, September and October – including the September school holidays.

Qantas also allows customers to change the date of their flight once without changing the date cost.
Stephanie Tully, who works as Qantas’ Chief Customer Officer, explained that the sale was part of an ongoing effort to revive the industry, which was devastated by COVID-19.
Qantas sees the prospect of firing 6,000 of its 29,000 employees after the crisis.
“The response we saw to recent sales exceeded our expectations and showed how much demand people have to get on a plane and get away,” said Ms. Tully.
“We expect this sale to further boost demand and encourage Australians to go on vacation and visit family and friends, while also helping get more of our people back to work.”
