12:40pm: Travellers looking for the catch on Jetstar’s 1c seat sale may be surprised.
The no-frills airline says this week’s 1c-a-seat offer for domestic flights includes GST and airport charges.
The only extra charge travellers may have to pay is a $5 service fee if the payment is made by a debit or credit card.
Jetstar's 1c fares are only available for people booking online through Jetstar.com and the flights are one-way and non-refundable.
Although the 1c seats will be made available between all domestic destinations – Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Queenstown, Dunedin – Jetstar says the travel periods will be different each day and they will vary between cities according to frequency.
Customers are advised to refer to the specials page on the Jetstar website at 6pm each day to find out the available flights.
Jetstar says it sold “hundreds” of flights last night when the sale opened and is expecting to sell out for the rest of the week.
8am: Jetstar is offering one-cent airfares for domestic flights in a promotion this week.
Each day between 6pm and 7pm, there will be 600 one-cent flights for sale, a total of 3000 for the week.
The move is an apparent response to Air New Zealand's $7 fares to Wellington announced last week.
"The one-cent sale began last night and has been very popular with travellers from all over New Zealand and we're sure they'll sell out fast every day until the sale ends," Jetstar group chief commercial officer David Koczkar says in a media statement.
The one-cent price is paid by direct deposit or voucher, otherwise a $5 booking fee applies.
