From 4 June, Australia’s favourite low fares carrier will fly between two of the nation’s most iconic landmarks - the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Ayers Rock (Uluru) - four times a week, with 1,400 weekly seats on offer to the Red Centre.

Jetstar Australia & New Zealand Chief Executive Officer David Hall said the airline’s low fares to one of the world’s top tourist sites will provide an opportunity for more Australian families and international visitors to travel to the destination.
