This is the second half of an analysis report on Jetstar Asia. The first part examined the airline’s improved profitability and its focus on growing interline and codeshare traffic, which has boosted yields. This part will focus on expansion opportunities in secondary markets and Jetstar Asia’s decision to maintain capacity at current levels.
