"27/09 So effectively you're saying Jetstar are getting a subsidy to compete with Air New Zealand? If that's the case I can't figure some of the airport companies out."

Yes!.
Just so you know to the Jetstar Regional services that are starting are subsidized by the towns local ratepayers eg Palmerston North, Nelson, Napier.
Jetstar basically held a bidding war between the councils in New Zealand to see who would stump up with the most $.
Most of the Regional centers had to bring Jetstar in or Air New Zealand were going to cut services to them, Air New Zealand were not going to give up if Jetstar moved in.
