Jetstar has just announced more flights connecting Newcastle and Cairns, with fares from $109.

The low-cost carrier has added 110 new flights from 25 June to 29 October 2022, and will fly three times per week on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The services are expected to carry up to 4,000 passengers per month.

Newcastle Airport CEO Dr Peter Cock says the new service reflects the community's continued support.

"I want to thank the people of our community for how they've backed our Cairns connection, and to Jetstar for their show of confidence in our region.

"Our locals love tropical leisure destinations, and we're very excited to partner with Jetstar and Cairns Airport to deliver this new season to one of Australia's favourite far-north playgrounds," Dr Cock said.

Jetstar will continue to monitor demand and assess whether the route will be extended beyond October 2022.

The current seasonal service has been operating since December 2021 and will end briefly on 30 April 2022, with the new seasonal service launching in time for the mid-year school holiday peak.
