KUALA LUMPUR: Australia's Jetstar has announced that the first low-cost direct long-haul flights between Kuala Lumpur and Sydney will take off Sept 9 with a special web-only offer from RM88 upwards for a one-way ticket.

However, bookings have to be made between now and 10pm tomorrow, Wednesday, July 25.

The offer is for two travel periods spanning Sept 9-20 this year and Feb 3-28 next year. The standard economy fare at other periods would be RM488, excluding surcharges and taxes.

The company hopes to have three weekly flights, subject to regulatory approval, it said at a presentation to travel industry representatives here Tuesday.

"Jetstar has sought to take a price leadership position in all international markets it serves," David May, general manager of marketing, said in a statement.

The company would also modify its "Double the Difference" voucher guarantee to include its KL-Sydney route.

"If any customer who finds a lower fare online against a Jetstar International flight on the same long-haul city pair, such as KL-Sydney, on the same travel date ... we will double the difference when the Jetstar fare is purchased," he said.

Jetstar currently has five other international destinations -- Bangkok, Phuket, Ho Chi Minh City, Denpasar and Osaka.
