Jetstar launches thousands of $35 tickets

Following the announcement of a new $99 flight between Melbourne and Hamilton Island, Jetstar has slashed the prices on thousands of other routes around the country.

The budget airline dropped a new 'Holiday Here' sale overnight, and the best bit is some fares will cost you little more than a McDonald's Family box.

The airline has dropped around 300,000 fares across the country, with seats starting from just $35 one-way on some routes.

Club Jetstar members were given exclusive early access to the cut-price fares, but even those without the membership have access to some pretty cheap deals.

The sale features discounted services to 57 routes, with some of the standouts including Uluru (Ayers Rocks) to Melbourne (Tullamarine) from $89, Byron to Sydney from $49, Hobart to Sydney from $79, and Melbourne (Tullamarine) to the Gold Coast (Coolangatta) from $69.
