Sydneysiders and Melburnians can take advantage of these ultra-low fares with Jetstar to Honolulu.

I can see a good variety of dates for those departing from Sydney, but those in Melbourne will have slimmer pickings.

Note that these fares include only a 7kg carry-on bag for free—checked bags and food cost more.

It can be really hard to find Business Class award availability between Australia and Hawaii. That means that finding a cheap Economy Class fare might be your ticket to getting good value from your trip.

Booking link: my advice would be to search by flexible dates through Google Flights first, then click through to the Jetstar website to book.

You can keep on top of these deals by setting up fare alerts with Jetstar.

Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. Fares may disappear quickly, so we suggest booking as soon as you are confident in your travel dates.
