Jetstar Airways (JQ) only accepts credit card payments on board. Jetstar Asia (3K) has also suspended cash sales on board for now. You can pre-purchase meals, snacks and drinks online. In fact, to minimise contact on board, we recommend you pre-order your meal up to 24 hours before departure through Manage My Booking.

We offer a variety of in-flight meals and snacks. Menus will vary depending on flight length, destination and the size of the aircraft – short flights on smaller planes offer quick and easy bites while longer international flights feature two meal services to keep you satisfied while you fly.


Many bundles include a meal (or a voucher/In-Flight Meal Deal for something from the on-board menu), and you can choose to have this during the first or second meal service. You can also pre-purchase an additional meal if you think you might get peckish. Check your itinerary to see what aircraft you’re travelling on, then check the menus below to see what’s available.

You can purchase a meal on board all Jetstar Airways (JQ), Jetstar Japan (GK) and Jetstar Asia (3K) international flights. Again, we recommend you pre-purchase to get the meal of your choice.

If you plan to purchase a meal on board Jetstar Asia (3K), be sure to download the PDF menu before you depart.
