Jetstar is giving away free flights for Kiwis who share the same birthday

June 10 babies, you’re in luck!

To celebrate 13 years of flying domestically in New Zealand on 10 June, Jetstar is giving away free flights to all its 'birthday buddies' who share the same birthday.

The giveaway, which goes live at 12:01am on 10 June, offers Kiwis over the age of 18 who are lucky enough to share Jetstar’s birthday the opportunity to claim a $100 Jetstar voucher to use on future flights.

Jetstar CEO Gareth Evans said the birthday celebrations come as Jetstar ramps up its New Zealand operations this month in response to relaxed restrictions and increased demand.

“It’s great to see travel demand bounce back as New Zealand and the rest of the world settle into a new kind of normal,” Mr Evans said.

“Over the coming weeks, we expect to reach around 90 per cent of our pre-pandemic schedule, with the restart of all our trans-Tasman and Cook Island routes as well as increased domestic flying.

“Our low fares are playing an incredibly important role in rebooting tourism after a tough few years, and it’s great to be able to help stimulate even more travel demand through our popular Birthday Sale and giveaway.”

The giveaway comes as recent Jetstar research revealed that the majority of New Zealanders said they would drop everything and head off on a trip immediately if they were given free flights.

Jetstar’s research also revealed around 40 per cent of New Zealanders are booking flights closer to their travel date than pre-pandemic, while the number of Kiwis that will book flights within a month of travel has more than doubled.

Jetstar's Birthday Giveaway will go live at 12.01am Friday, 10 June 2022 and will end at midnight that day. Those born on 10 June will have 24 hours to enter to receive their $100 flight voucher on www.jetstarbirthday.co.nz
