Qantas Group stated (23-Aug-2012) Jetstar Japan has had a successful launch, with 100,000 passengers flown from 03-Jul-2012 to 21-Aug-2012, with a 86% load factor in the opening month and "continued strong performance" since. The current fleet of four A320s will grow to 13 by Jun-2013, as the carrier increases its network from 78 to 495 weekly services by end of FY2013. The increased operations will come from a mix of increased frequencies on the initial network, the establishment of a second Japanese base in 1HFY2013 and the launch of international services from 2HFY2013. The carrier noted funding has been committed for 24 aircraft.
