Jetstar will resume flights from Newcastle to Melbourne in three weeks.
The domestic airline will fly to the Victorian capital starting from Friday, June 26, at 6.25pm.
It has scheduled three flights in the first week of resumed services before increasing to daily from the second week onwards.
Prices will start at $39 for a one-way a ticket on some days to and from Melbourne as the airline industry emerges from coronavirus restrictions.
Jetstar and parent company Qantas will ramp up from 5 per cent of their domestic flying capacity to 15 per cent across the country and possibly to 40 per cent by the end of July.
Sydney to Melbourne flights will increase from five per week now to 46 by the end of the month.
Both airlines said they would have measures in place from June 12 to ensure passengers had a safe environment at airports and onboard aircraft.
The new measures include contactless check-in, more cleaning and masks and sanitising wipes for all customers.

Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said on Thursday that there was a "lot of pent-up demand" for air travel.
"We are already seeing a big increase in customers booking and planning flights in the weeks and months ahead," he said.
"We are gradually adding flights in June as demand levels increase, which will go from 5 per cent of pre-crisis levels currently to 15 per cent by late June.
"We can quickly ramp up flying in time for the July school holidays if border restrictions have eased more by then.
"Normally, we plan our capacity months in advance, but in the current climate we need to be flexible to respond to changing restrictions and demand levels."
