Jetstar again considering expanding into Europe

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.
