Introduction to Jetstar Groups
Whether you’re organising a conference, sporting trip, school event, or simply a group of 10 or more people, Jetstar provides Groups with a product that is both competitive and flexible along with access to a dedicated Groups consultant who will manage your bookings from initial quote to finalisation of travel.
Our experienced team recognises and understands the unique needs of Group travel, so we have developed a product that is both competitive and flexible. The ability to block seats, share baggage allowance and make name changes are just some of the benefits that our Group fares can offer. Coupled with our airlines award winning service and ever growing network, Jetstar is Australia’s Low Cost Airline for Group Travel.

Do you have group check in?
Jetstar does not have allocated group check-in desks at the airport. Group passengers can check- in individually upon arrival or one after the other at the Jetstar check-in counter. We recommend Groups arrive for check-in at least 90 minutes prior to departure for AU/NZ Domestic flights and at least 2hrs prior for International flights. Groups will not be able to use kiosks or web check-in.
What ID do I need at check-in?
All passengers, including children and infants travelling with an adult, are required to provide identification acceptable to Jetstar. The following forms of photo identification are acceptable provided they are current and not expired.
- Drivers Licence;
- Company issued identification;
- Student ID
- An original or certified copy of your birth certificate or document is an acceptable alternative.
For School/Student Groups that will not be able to present the above, please contact the Group Reservations team who may be able to suggest an acceptable alternative.
Passengers, who are travelling internationally to/from Australia, must present their valid passport (with required validity period) for check-in at the airport. It is the passenger’s responsibility at all times to have appropriate travel documentation and entry permits such as Visas. Some countries may require proof of onward or return travel. All children and infants travelling with an adult require their own passport or should be registered in either of their parent’s passports.
For people travelling to the USA only: Please ensure you have supplied JQ with all passengers DOB information prior to departure. You must also obtain your electronic Visa at least 72hrs prior to travel.
