Tickets for flights on Jetstar Japan have gone on sale as the Qantas Airways' owned low-cost-carrier moves closer to its July 3, 2012 launch date.
Fares start from 3,950 Japanese yen ($A41.25) for a one-way flight from Osaka to Fukuoka, rising to 6,990 yen ($A80.31) to travel between Tokyo's Narita airport to Okinawa, Jetstar Japan said in a statement on Tuesday.
Also, 10,000 seats were on offer for just one yen.
Jetstar group chief executive Bruce Buchanan said Jetstar Japan would give Australia's tourism industry a boost through linking Japanese regional centres to Osaka and Tokyo, where Jetstar operated flights to Queensland and the Northern Territory.
Tourism Australia chief executive managing director Andrew McEvoy said there had been a positive turnaround of tourist numbers from Japan, Australia's the fifth largest source of inbound visitors, following the 2011 tsunami.
Jetstar Japan will serve five domestic destinations - Tokyo (Narita), Osaka, Sapporo, Fukuoka and Okinawa - with an initial fleet of three narrow-body Airbus A320s each seating 180 passengers.
Qantas and Japan Airlines each held a one-third stake in Jetstar Japan, while Mitsubishi Corp and Century Tokyo Leasing both owned 16.7 per cent.
