Jetstar are selling $35 flights as travel restrictions ease. Where will you go?

As the borders prepare to open, we can finally start planning some well-needed vacays!

While international travel is a long way off, Australia is preparing to open some of its interstate borders which means we can finally catch up with friends or loved ones or just get out of the house!

And in a new announcement, Qantas and its budget sibling, Jetstar revealed they will be reopening 300 domestic flights as travel restrictions ease.

Scheduled to start operating in July, the domestic flights are being sold at an incredibly affordable price starting at just $35 from Sydney to Ballina (Byron Bay.)

As NSW is the first state to open travel from June 1, Byron Bay could be the perfect pre-planned holiday as we approach spring and into summer!

While QLD borders are still closed for interstate travel, civilians of the golden state can fly from Brisbane to the Whitsundays for just $39, and to Cairns for $69. 

Even connecting flights from Brisbane to Townsville, Mackay and Horn Island have also been included in the 300 flights with each ticket from $39.

As of June, Victoria and NSW are the only two states in the country to remove their border closures without a compulsory two-week quarantine, so there's plenty of opportunity for travel between these two great cities.

Flights between Melbourne and Sydney will be available through Jetstar and Qantas from June 30-July 31 from $55 one-way - and Melburnians can even make the leap to Byron Bay for an affordable $69.

So with this in mind, where will you be going?
