Jetstar Airways, a wholly owned subsidiary of
the Qantas Group, has selected IAE’s V2500 engine to power a
further 32 Airbus A320 family aircraft.
This is the third time that the airline has
selected International Aero Engines as its engine provider since
an initial order in 2004.
Its engines are currently fitted to all 74
of the Jetstar Group’s A320s and A321s.
New engine deliveries are scheduled to
begin next year covered by an IAE V-Services fleet hour agreement
for new A320s originally ordered from Airbus in August 2011.
“The V2500 engine has proven itself to be a
valuable part of our successful operations across Jetstar Group's
Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Vietnam-based operations,”
said Jetstar’s Executive Manager of Engineering, Chris Snook. “The reliability, fuel burn and environmental
advantage of the V2500 engine helps Jetstar deliver consistently
low fares to our customers. As we continue to grow our presence in Japan
this year, IAE will play an important role in supporting the
Jetstar Group’s growth across the Asia Pacific.”
The Jetstar Group consists of
Jetstar Airways in Australia and New Zealand, Jetstar Asia in
Singapore, Jetstar Pacific in Vietnam, Jetstar Japan and (subject
to regulatory approval) Jetstar Hong Kong.
Jetstar Group offers up to 3,000 flights a week to more than 60
destinations in 17 countries and territories across the Asia
