Jetstar has put 25,000 discounted flights on sale, including $30 domestic and $135 international airfares out of Christchurch.

The sale comes on the back of a survey of 500 New Zealanders, asking what makes them like someone on dating apps.

The study found 50 per cent of single New Zealanders are more likely to "swipe right" if the profile shows the person is into travel.

So Jetstar launched its Profile Pic Upgrade Sale, which features 17 different fares and runs from midnight Thursday, March 14, till Monday, March 18. 

The study also suggested you don't use a photo from a fishing trip as 35 per cent of those surveyed claimed they would "instantly reject" it. 

Instead most singles said they found a photo of someone on holiday enjoying the local cuisine, relaxing on a beach or drinking coffee at a cafe more appealing.

Most respondents also claimed they are not into flashy or expensive getaways, but are instead attracted to adventurous travellers (25 per cent) and/or culture-loving sightseers (21 per cent).
