Come June 4th 2013 and Jetstar will be touching down in Ayers Rock for the first time as a part of the new four flights a week service. As a part of a codeshare agreement between Qantas and Jetstar the new service will be a welcome one for both international and domestic tourists looking for options to visit the Ayers Rock. It will also be a great impetus for the local economy which practically lives off tourism.
Jetstar is known for their no frills attached down right budget prices and innovative marketing methods. They are very popular across the sectors where they operate in Australia. Needless to say tourists from all segments are going to welcome this development. Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia welcomes this move especially as they have recently made a massive $30 million improvement to the Ayers Rock Resort. The improvements now offer tourists coming to the iconic Ayers Rock, a completely new level in service quality when they stay with them, mentioned Koos Klein, Voyages Managing Director.
This massive amount of money has been spent over the course of the past 12 months and now offers a completely refurbished premium Sails, the brand new Uluru Meeting Place, a new experience in the form of a daily Suite of free Indigenous Guest activities, a breathtaking under-the-stars dining experience, Tali Wiru and a newly introduced Outback Sky Journeys tours for those who want to enjoy an authentic outback adventure.
Jetstar’s new service is priced at $119 onwards and offers additional options for connecting to Qantas’ extensive service network anywhere in Australia and beyond. Started as a replacement for the current Qantas Sydney-Ayers Rock service, the Jetstar low-cost service will compliment the existing Qantas services from Melbourne and Sydney via Alice Springs and the direct Cairns – Ayers Rock service. Koos mentioned that the current flights and the addition of the direct Jetstar connections will magnify the options that the travellers have in order to visit the Ayers Rock. He also informed that Voyages is getting into a partnership with Jetstar as a part of an elaborate promotion for the Ayers Rock Resort and hopefully it shall be well received by customers.
