Jetstar to Expand in NZ..... with longhaul

Looks as though Jetstar will be needing a few of the new cadets in NZ.

"Later this year, Jetstar will base a 7th A320 aircraft in New Zealand with the flexibility to operate on domestic or international routes from its existing NZ ports.

A 7th positioned A320 will create around 50 new airline jobs for Jetstar’s NZ operations in Pilot, Cabin Crew, Engineering and Airport Customer Services areas, growing to beyond 300 jobs.

In addition, Jetstar is currently considering deployment of two-class A330-200 aircraft to support the launch of first time value based long haul Jetstar international services to New Zealand."


It would appear the rumours of two A330's to be based in AKL could well be correct with rumours of SFO and Vancouver. Interesting times ahead.

Should not be a problem, the great circle distance is only 12nm longer than AKL-LAX which QF will be doing shortly with an A330.

QF has been doing AKL-LAX-AKL with the 330.
Shame about the cargo offloads. Very unhappy freight types.

A while back Joyce denied that JQ would ever operate longhaul to the US. At the time I commented on this forum that once that was said it was a certainty to happen.

The AKL-SFO is the beginning of course. AKL-LAX will follow not long after, especially after the route has been proven by the red tail A330 (easier for ETOPS ect ect - not that there is anything special about the route, or QF flying it)

F***** me, sometimes I wish they would just wind up QF and make it all Jetstar and just get it over with

Heard this from the Townsville refueler:

Now called the "Cane toads", instead of "Porn-star"... always moving in on (shadowing) established territory (no innovation).

Jetstar to fly from Singapore to Melbourne, AucklandWednesday, 9 June 2010

Singapore will soon have its first long haul low fare airline, with Jetstar planning to launch daily direct services to Melbourne and Auckland from its Singapore hub.

Subject to regulatory approval, the carrier will start a daily direct Singapore- Melbourne return service from December 16 this year using two wide body A330s.

It will then launch a daily direct Singapore-Auckland return service from March 17 next year. Qantas will codeshare on the new routes.

Jetstar Chief Executive Officer Bruce Buchanan said the connecting of the carrier’s three largest operations in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore would strengthen each of the businesses and build a solid foundation for future growth beyond Singapore to North Asia and Europe.

Sale fares for Melbourne – Singapore flights are available today between 5pm to 7pm and tomorrow between 5am to 5pm.

Jetstar launches daily Akl - Singapore flights




Low-cost airline Jetstar is launching a new daily direct service between Auckland and Singapore in time for the Rugby World Cup.
The new service will begin on March 17 next year and introductory fares could be as low as about $100 one way.
Jetstar says its standard fares on its daily direct services will be lower than the only carrier on the same route, Singapore Airlines.
Airline executive manager of operations Mark Dal Pra said it will start selling seats within the next fortnight. Although he could not say what fares would be, the airline launched a Melbourne-Singapore service today with a limited number of promotional seats at A$99 (NZ$122) one way.
As with its New Zealand domestic and transtasman services passengers will have to pay extra for food and entertainment and depending on the type of fare, there will be charges for bags.
An Airbus A330-200 will be used on the route with StarClass business class on offer.

Dal Pra said its StarClass was typically the same price as other carriers' full fare economy seats.
Jetstar chief executive Bruce Buchanan said the new flights offered travellers "an array of new affordable travel options".
"Connecting our three largest operations in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore strengthens each of these businesses and builds a solid foundation for future growth beyond Singapore to North Asia and Europe," he said.
Today's news comes just days after Jetstar said it was adding an A320 airbus to its fleet and was announced on the eve of the first anniversary of their entry into the New Zealand domestic market.
The new service is subject to regulatory approval.
The new Jetstar services will support major New Zealand tourism initiatives including the 2011 Rugby World Cup, said Dal Pra.
Jetstar will base two wide-body Airbus A330-200 aircraft in Singapore. They are configured to carry 303 passengers in a two-class cabin.
Last month Continental Airlines announced it was planning direct flights between Auckland and Houston five times a week beginning November 2011.
That service will use the airlines new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
Auckland Airport chief executive Simon Moutter said the latest announcement would not only benefit New Zealand tourism and trade but would provide New Zealand travellers with greater choice.
"This news is very consistent with our own Asian tourism growth ambitions.
"Auckland Airport had recently signalled to the market an intention to invest further into building sustainable high growth markets out of Asia."
The announcement provided just some of the extra capacity the airport needed to achieve this goal, Moutter said.
