Why Fly with Jetstar

Ways To Check In

Jetstar offers 3 convenient ways for people to check in to flights in New Zealand and Australia: airport, kiosk and online. Other airports offer additional ways to check in, such as Hong Kong's in-town service and Singapore's early check-in option.

Online check-in is available for most flights, although not if you're travelling to America, if you're flying with an infant or if you need assistance to board the plane.

For domestic flights in New Zealand, the online check-in opens 28 days before your departure. If your flight leaves from an international airport, you'll have to show ID when you arrive.

Baggage Allowance & Fees

All economy passengers are entitled to 1 piece of carry-on luggage on Jetstar, weighing up to 7kg (2 items for business class passengers).

A checked baggage allowance is available for purchase. This ranges from 1 bag weighing up to 15kg to 2 bags with a combined weight up to 40kg, although neither can weigh more than 32kg.

Baggage is cheapest to buy at the time of booking, but it can also be added on through the airline website's 'manage my booking' feature or when you arrive at the airport.


Depending on the fare you book and the type of upgrade you want, selecting your seat may be complimentary or it may incur a small fee.

For starter fare passengers, any seat selection costs money, whether it's a standard seat, an upfront seat or one with extra legroom. Starter Max passengers, however, can choose any type of seat they like without paying extra.

Exit row seats, which give extra legroom, are available for passengers to book so long as they meet certain requirements – such as being at least 15 years old, being able to help in an emergency, and not being pregnant or travelling with an infant.
