Jetstar again considering expanding into Europe

20-Aug-2009 10:43 AM

Jetstar is again considering expanding into Europe in the next two years, and is looking into new Asian hubs for the services, following Qantas Group’s announcement of plans to lease a further four A330 aircraft for the subsidiary (The Australian, 20-Aug-09). According to Jetstar CEO, Bruce Buchanan, a change in design on the new A330s meant the aircraft would have improved payload capability, enabling the carrier to offer services to southern European destinations without passenger restrictions.
