Get your luggage ready, because Jetstar has announced it will slash 5000 fares from Sydney to Adelaide following the announcement South Australia will reopen its border with NSW from midnight.
After reporting no community transmission cases in NSW, South Australia will open the border to visitors who will not be required to go through mandatory quarantine.
From midday, Jetstar will reduce the price of one way tickets from Sydney to Adelaide to just $59 – but residents in NSW will need to be quick, with the budget airline putting just 5000 seats on sale for the next 36 hours.
Jetstar, along with Qantas, announced there had been a surge in Sydney to Adelaide fare inquiries following the announcement of border restrictions easing by Premier Steven Marshall.

Jetstar has announced it will go from five weekly flights to twice daily in October and three times daily in November, while Qantas reintroduces a daily service.
In the past 24 hours, Qantas and Jetstar has seen huge demand on the route with more than 6500 seats sold collectively.
Virgin Australia has recommenced flights between Canberra and Adelaide, and will operate daily flights between Adelaide and Sydney, as well as Brisbane and Canberra, and will add more than 3000 seats across the month of October between Canberra and the Gold Coast.
A spokesperson for Virgin Australia said return flights from Adelaide to Sydney will increase from three times a week to daily from October 2, and to twice a day from November 2.
“We look forward to the safe reopening of further borders to help the tourism and aviation industries to recover and provide more opportunities for Australians to travel locally,” they said.
