If you are considering flights to Sydney, you will be flying into Sydney Airport which is also referred to as Kingsford Smith Airport. Kingsford Smith Airport is the busiest airport in Australia and has three terminals. The international terminal is separated from the two domestic terminals by a runway so it is recommended that those needing to get from one to the other allow for extra time.
Your transportation options at Kingsford Smith Airport include car, taxi, shuttle, bus or train. Kingsford Smith Airport is located 13 minutes from Sydney. You can take the Airport Link train located at the north end of the terminal to reach many areas in the city.
If you want to save money on your transportation costs, make sure that you purchase an Opal card. This is the integrated payment system for public transportation in Sydney. By using an Opal card, you will get the lowest possible rate when using public transport. You can add money to your card at bus stations and convenience stores.
In Sydney, shift changeover time for taxis is 2 a.m. and 2 p.m. It’s next to impossible to find a taxi between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. and 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. in Sydney. If you need transportation from the airport to your hotel or an attraction during these times, it’s a much better option to look for an Uber or a Go Catch. Go Catch is a popular Australian version of Uber.
If you’re feeling stressed from your travels, be sure to visit Terminal 2 and stop by the Lorna Jane Active Living Room. You’ll find a yoga room with mats and equipment as well as the Healthy Nourish Cafe where you can grab a quick bite to eat.

Pros: The only thing i liked wad the quick boarding and the fact that the flight was direct.

Cons: I think it's ridiculous to have a 10 hour flight and not give anything complimentary no soft drink no snacks nothing. I have been on domestic flights of two hours and gotten more. I also think its crazy to charge people $10 for entertainment like every other flight ive ever been on its included. For quite a long fight i thought it was a shame.

Excellent 9.6

Pros: The flight was quite empty, so there were a lot of empty seats. As it were, I had a whole row to myself, so I was able to lie down and sleep for some of the flight.

Cons: Meals & drinks were not included, which I knew, but no one mentioned that there was water in the back of the plane for us to drink. I went 10 hours without drinking anything and was absolutely parched by the time I landed.

Okay 4.0

Cons: Spent almost 200 dollars for baggage and seating. They lost my luggage and it took 3 days to get it back, finally. On my flight back they messed up my seat. I booked an aisle seat and got something right in the middle. When I told them I payed for seating they told me that you can pay for it but they still don't guarantee that you get the seat. Why exactly do I spent money on seating then? I'll never fly jetstar again.

I will NEVER use this airlines again, no matter how much cheaper they are than the others. Also, Nothing on the menu was complementary- not even the water.

Had to collect my bags, go through customs, recheck bags, take a shuttle to a domestic flight terminal, go through security, then I hear over the speaker it was the final boarding call for my flight, had to run again. I am a 56 y/o woman, was not fun. When I arrived in Cairns at about noon, I found that my bag missed the flight. I was told my bag would be delivered to my hotel in Palm Cove that evening, I received my bag the next morning. The flights into and out of LA were run by Delta, the flight from Sydney to Cairns was VIrgin Australia.

Cons: I didn't like how people just rushed to get in front of the line and didn't wait for their row numbers to be called when boarding the plane. I understand that everyone wants the overhead compartment space, but it was just rude. Also, it is frustrating that the airline will nickel and dime you for everything. My suggestion is to make you sure you buy the Kilograms for your luggage before you get to the airport (if you are checking luggage in) or else you are going to be paying a hefty price to check your bags. Also you are only allowed 7 Kgs (15 lbs) for carry on luggage...if you go over that you will be charged. The seats were comfortable, but way too close together.

Pros: They were super nice and did not charge me for boiling water and tap water as I made my own meal on the plane. They gave me an extra-large cup which made it easy for me to make my freeze-dried meal!

Cons: Reading the reviews - I also got the impression from Kayak that there would be 1 free checked bag. It took 2 hours for me to get my bags upon arrival, so I was almost unable to re-check my bags when the layover was almost 3 hours. I had to take a cab from the international airport to the domestic one, rushing to make the bag check-in deadline, and then get there to see the flight delayed 30 mins. The delay is not the problem, stuff happens, it was the lack of communication, from start to finish that was frustrating. Other airlines have texting and email services, and offer to check bags right outside of customs. I was glad to have brought my own food - $10 for 5 tablespoons of rice? $7.50 for instant noodles? at least the portion size looked OK. The flight staff were very nice, but I felt like the girl at the bar only drinking water.

Pros: THE PRICE OF THE TICKET IS WHY YOU WOULD FLY JETSTAR. OTHERWISE, YOU WOULDN'T FLY JETSTAR.

Cons: The food menu is very limited to bready, carbohydrates - not a single salad or actual meal is available. Everything is tv dinner style. The entertainment only changes every few months so if you are frequent flyer with JetStar, you'll get bored of the movie and TV selection within three flights. The customer service varies wildly. I had one flight where a steward spilled a cup (literally) of water on me and handed me two napkins, and another flight where they moved me to a more comfortable seat upon request. Also, the JetStar membership is a JOKE! I paid for a year membership with the offer of deals and lower, membership prices. HA! I have yet to see an international offer, and they only reduce prices of say entertainment by $1. Also, they don't have an actual MILES program. If I was flying with ANY other company, I would have received some type of positive upgrade for all my flying with them. I must have flown 100,000 miles with them this year already.

Pros: 160 dollars per check on and on the flight nothing is free they waont even give you a drop of water unless you pay and we had a 10 hour flight with them no food or water unless you whip out that credit card

Pros: The only thing i liked wad the quick boarding and the fact that the flight was direct.

Cons: I think it's ridiculous to have a 10 hour flight and not give anything complimentary no soft drink no snacks nothing. I have been on domestic flights of two hours and gotten more. I also think its crazy to charge people $10 for entertainment like every other flight ive ever been on its included. For quite a long fight i thought it was a shame.

Good 7.3

Cons: The original flight was canceled and Jetstar put us on a later Qantss flight. The Qantss flight was good, but there was a lot of stress and uncertainty up until we were able to check in for our flight the day of the trip. It is clear Jetstar canceled its flight because the plane would not have been full.

Pros: The seats were comfortable, sufficiently soft and reclined nicely. We brought a lot of food on the flight, knowing they weren't providing any, and they didn't care that we had a lot of our own food.

Cons: It was a long flight (10 hours) without being provided any food or beverage other than water. The prices for the food and beverages will very high. They could have offered at least a beverage other than water for free.

Pros: The crew were very friendly and professional. Economy seats were slightly better than most, but the configuration of the 2 seats was good 2 of us to have our own area. Food was good.

Cons: Boarding was hectic and unorganized, but functional. Movies/TV shows were limited compared to other airlines. I am taller so seating in any economy seat is cramped at best.

Okay 4.6

Pros: The staff was all very nice and I always felt like they were doing their best to help. the situation seemed out of their control. It was nice of the airline to provide hotel and meal vouchers. (The meal vouchers didn't go very far at the Sheraton where all the food is very over priced.)

Cons: My flight was delayed 16 hours so I missed my entire trip to Fiji. This is devastating to me and I feel I should be compensated. Fiji Airways didn't notify me of the delay until I was already at the airport checking in so it wasted even more time and money. I bought this ticket because the flight time was convenient. Then it left at 3:55am which is the worst time to leave because I couldn't sleep beforehand and felt awful the whole evening and during the flight and after. To top it off the airline wouldn't check my bag through to my final destination. I was very unhappy with how this occurred.

The entertainment only changes every few months so if you are frequent flyer with JetStar, you'll get bored of the movie and TV selection within three flights. The customer service varies wildly. I had one flight where a steward spilled a cup (literally) of water on me and handed me two napkins, and another flight where they moved me to a more comfortable seat upon request.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
