Jetstar Hong Kong to operate short-haul routes within five hours
Jetstar Hong Kong said the start-up carrier plans to commence services in 2013 with short-haul routes within five hours initially including services to cities in China, Japan, South Korea and other Southeast Asian countries (Takungpao, 29-Sep-2012). The carrier also said it will offer fares on average of up to 50% cheaper than existing full service options. As previously reported, Jetstar Hong Kong will launch operations with a fleet of three A320s initially expanding to 18 aircraft by the end of 2015. The Civil Aviation Department of Hong Kong accepted the Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) application for Jetstar Hong Kong in Jul-2012.
