Jetstar Asia has made a major advancement in its international flight distribution through an interline ticketing and settlement deal with Qantas.

The new agreement will provide a seamless ticketing offering for airline customers on all of the Singapore based carrier’s markets.

From today, the Jetstar Asia markets of Kuala Lumpur, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu and Penang will be available under the agreement for travel effective 1 August 2009.

Interline arrangements will progressively added to the airline’s remaining Asian network in coming weeks.

The Jetstar Group of airlines, including Jetstar’s Australian operations, also plan to extend interline and ticket settlement arrangements in the future between Jetstar Asia and a number of leading Asian and European international carriers.

Jetstar Asia and Valuair Chief Executive Officer Ms Chong Phit Lian said said the interline agreement with Qantas would provide a seamless booking process for both customers and agents wanting to expand their selling network into and within Asia, whilst also offering a normal settlement process.

She said examples of the new interline agreement with Qantas could offer London or German based customers the ability to purchase itineraries to Singapore and in time to all other Jetstar Asia markets on its existing flight network.

“The Jetstar Asia network, which includes many of South East Asia’s leading leisure destinations, will increasingly be able to seamlessly connect with Qantas’ global network into and out of Singapore,” Ms Chong said.

“Airline customers will be able to purchase for example a future London-Singapore-Penang or a London-Singapore-Manila itinerary utilising Qantas and Jetstar services with full connectivity back to London.

“Numerous options through Jetstar’s expanding Singapore hub are also now available to support mixed travel itineraries to and from Singapore into Australia.”

Similar to interline offered by full service carriers Jetstar Asia’s interline ticketing will be available on Global Distribution Systems (GDS).

Jetstar’s Australian operations already offer interline and ticket settlement relationships with Qantas and Etihad, with future interline fare sales to start with South Pacific carriers Air Tahiti Nui and Air Calin.
