Any indication if they will re-open a Perth base?

If I only have ICAO ATPL, do you think I can apply Jetstar A320/1 FO thats currently posted?
Would the company provide some kind of AUS ATPL certification program?
I'm currently flying in Korea on B777. Close to 4000Hr on B737 & B777
I would love to go back to AUS if I can.

We think it will happen it's just a matter of when. The current arrangement is terrible for everyone. With Rumour of expanding to other Asian destinations from Perth using the NEO, they will have to reopen the base. However I wouldn't base your decision to join the company on that alone. If it's smart, cost effective and efficient, Jetstar management will find a way to screw it up. You honestly have no idea how short sighted and incompetent they are. Save $1 today that costs $10 tomorrow.
All the ex Perth crew still have right of return (don't know how long for) and the base would probably go rather senior.

The industry is not for those without stamina!
You wrote these words of wisdom (read bullsxxt) in May 2016. A recent seniority list has awarded commands to people who joined J* in early to mid 2017

how is it terrible for everyone? I very much doubt they will open it anytime soon if ever. There is no need for a tech crew base if they got the number up on the east coast. However, they need a cabin crew base there soon rather than later.

Historically the business sources via regional channels (Rex namely, Dash drivers etc). The others are not as selective. The company wonít help you with anything, get your licenses in order before you apply.

You would have better luck with Virgin or Alliance.

Surely the management gurus could start up Jetstar Ethiopia, Jetstar India and probably Jetstar Uganda.

Let’s just cover the world in Jetstar Orange.

In 2008 they were talking about jetstar franchises in Europe. I think the failure that has been Vietnam and HK has reigned in the hubris a bit.

The old saying stick to your backyard comes to mind.

Tigerís patch was Singapore. Soon tried Australia (fail), Indonesia (fail), Thai (shelved), Phil (fail), Korea (shelved), and sold the Taiwan attempt to a local airline.

Jetstar tried Vietnam (fail), Japan (questionable), Singapore (flogging the dead horse still going 15 years on), HK (lol), Kiwi (breaks even). Who remembers the Singapore A330 Ďbaseí (fail)

The AirAsia boss once made a comment about a bunch of white guys trying to run airlines in Asia in reference to the above carriers, he was right, they all had no idea.

Haha.. correct crew number's... What are we 40 FOs short at the moment? What about when more LRs and XLRs arrive, who is going to fly them? Talked to anyone in recruitment lately? Apparently it's not going so well. Plus the ones leaving to QF etc.
I can think of a few reasons no Perth base sucks.. 1. Its terrible for the passengers as flights are continuously delayed and cancelled due to crew issues.
2. it's terrible for the company reputation and bottom line having to deal with the above. Not to mention paying all the work day offs to the few crews that still live in Perth.
3. The terrible rosters it creates. Regularly doing 10-12 overnights a month. Bali, Darwin and Perth rotations that vary from early to back of the clocks then do the opposite pattern with the opposite body clock adjustment a day or two later.
4. We seem to pax more these days. A colonoscopy is more pleasant than a Perth or Bali paxing sector. I love sitting in a tiny middle seat that is harder than concrete, surrounded by our "lovely" passengers for 4+ hours.
5. When was the last time anyone did any overtime because of all these inefficient over nights.
6. "Would you like the Mac n cheese or the butter chicken for breakfast on your Perth Bali today? And No, of course there is no salad,. fruit or anything remotely edible for your crew meal today. Just be thankful we are giving you anything."

Let me guess, you're an east coast TC married to JQ cabin crew, clearly you haven't blown through PER recently, on the other hand, your mrs may as well be living there???

There was never a cabin crew base in PER, nor will there ever be. JQ will ultimately continue to prioritise the use of Singapore, Bangkok, Phuket and Bali based cabin crew on all international sectors out of PER. Tech crew on the other hand, that's another story, FRMS limitations using east coast acclimatised crew, flight recovery issues due lack of local STB, crewing reliance on tech crew goodwill excepting duty changes during hotel layovers, the list goes on.

By the Mainline 321XLR with 20J.

Ex PER - JQ

HKT 2600nm
MNL 2791nm
SGN 2611nm

JQ was getting a cabin crew base however two weeks prior to its opening those who were going there were moved to Qantas instead and project Asia began.

A321XLR range maps.

A 321LR is halfway between the 738 and an XLR. So an LR can reach HKT or MNL, but you need an XLR to HKG. The XLR can make it as far north as PVG or far west as BLR or MRU.

But the first 20 XLRís will only be on primarily domestic sectors til at least 2027, so all these dreams of flying narrowbody aircraft to dozens of Asian destinations are still years away.
