According to an article in The Australian, Ozjet are upping the ante to fill their planes....
In a bid to boost passenger numbers the carrier is to announce today a two-for-one deal giving passengers who book on its flights either a free return ticket or a companion fare. After more than a month of operations, Ozjet is still struggling to fill planes and has flown with as few three passengers.
The limited offer is an attempt to get people to try the product ahead of the full return of business traffic after Australia Day on January 26.
The airline has also raised to 10 per cent the commission it pays travel agents as an incentive to promote the airline at a time when most competitors are slashing commissions.
The airline halved its Sydney-Melbourne schedule to eight sectors a day - four flights each way - during the traditionally quiet Christmas period.
Mr van Pelt said Ozjet would boost that to 12 sectors a day from next Monday and reintroduce its full schedule in the week following Australia Day.
