Jetstar Pacific plans to phase out B737 fleet by end of 2013

12-Sep-2011 12:08 PM

Jetstar Group CEO Bruce Buchanan tells CAPA its Vietnamese affiliate, Jetstar Pacific, is planning to return its five B737-400s over the next two years and transition to an all-A320 fleet. Jetstar Pacific now operates only two A320s alongside the five B737-400s. Mr Buchanan says the carrier is now slated to take eight more A320s by the end of 2013, giving it a fleet of 10. He adds the “primary focus” at Jetstar Pacific is currently to stabilise the business and renew the fleet. Jetstar Pacific currently only operates domestically but Mr Buchanan says new routes to China are currently under consideration. [more-CAPA report]
