Jetstar promotes ‘Limited Time Only’ sale with stunning outdoor artworks

Jetstar has unveiled its ‘Limited Time Only’ sale alongside a series of stunning outdoor artworks created by local artists that celebrate the return of quarantine-free travel between Australia and New Zealand.

The sale will see over 250,000 fares on sale across the Tasman and Australia and New Zealand domestic routes.

Created with the help of advertising agency Thinkerbell, Jetstar’s collaboration with three artists from Barwon Heads, Sydney and Auckland aims to inspire New Zealanders and Australians to explore the two countries while they have it to themselves for a limited time only.

Alan McIntyre, chief customer officer at Jetstar, said: “We are extremely fortunate to have some of the world’s most diverse attractions right here on our doorstep.

“And we’re excited to be working with local artists to showcase their backyards and inspire more people to get out and explore more of Australia and New Zealand.

“The opening of the trans-Tasman bubble is an important milestone, and we are looking forward to more international travel in the future.

“But right now, we have a unique opportunity to spend more time discovering and enjoying our two countries and we hope our low fares and this campaign will encourage more people to do just that.

Edward, the “Banksy of Barwon Heads”, was commissioned to create the large-scale sand art to celebrate Victoria’s Great Ocean Road.

“The Great Ocean Road is a pretty magical place right now,” he said.

“Over the last year, the beaches have been quieter. There are more waves to share and it’s easier to hear the ripple of the ocean.

“I reckon any Aussie or Kiwi who has the chance should come on down to the Great Ocean Road. It’s available now, for a limited time only for us to enjoy all to ourselves.”

“This sand art is the largest art of its kind, taking up 90 metres in width and 40 metres in height. I created it with a purpose build sand rake over two-and-a-half hours.”
