Jetstar Is Cancelling Many Flights Due To Strikes Tomorrow

In December of last year, Jetstar was the face of quite a lot of media attention and not for the right reason. The company has been accused of paying the lowest wages of any airport worker, and due to this, the Transport Workers Union have conducted strikes in the past in the hope of change. Not only did this include front line staff and ground staff but also previously included pilots in the mix.

The Unions have recently announced when they’ll next strike, and this is scheduled to happen tomorrow which will be the 19th of February. Unlike the previous strikes, only domestic services will be cancelled & all international services remain operating as usual.

What do I do if I’m on one of those services tomorrow?

  • If you’re booked on one of the affected services, Jetstar is allowing you to get a refund. Interestingly they don’t specify if it’s the total amount of the ticket, but in this case, I would imagine it would be. Here’s the form you’ll need to fill out.
  • The airline is also allowing passengers to change the date of travel for free between the 19th and 27th with no cost.
  • If you’re on a service tomorrow that gets delayed or ends up being cancelled, Jetstar will either put you on another service, offer a refund and for travellers that require an overnight, JQ will provide the accommodation for you.


If you’re affected by any of these flights tomorrow or even flying Jetstar domestically for that matter, I would heavily advise that you keep up to date with Jetstar’s social media channels as this is usually be most up to date and quickest way to find out any important information. I’ll link their main channels below.
