Jetstar launches three new trans-Tasman routes

Jetstar confirmed (13-Dec-2010) plans to launch three new trans-Tasman routes:

  • Melbourne-Auckland: daily service;
  • Melbourne-Queenstown: twice weekly service on 16-Dec-2010;
  • Gold Coast-Queenstown: twice weekly service on 17-Dec-2010. 

The new A320 services represent a boost in Jetstar’s trans-Tasman operations by almost 20%, with an additional 3100 seats each week on the route. Jetstar’s trans-Tasman network will be further expanded to a total of 10 routes with plans to launch Cairns-Auckland service in Apr-2011. The carrier also plans to launch daily Melbourne-Singapore service later this week - see Route Changes Table for more information. [more]
