Jetstar Japan, one of Japans newest low-cost carriers (LCC), has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320 aircraft in Toulouse, France.

 The Japanese carrier will start commercial services in July operating from Narita to Kansai, Fukuoka, Sapporo, and Okinawa with an initial fleet of three aircraft. This fleet will grow to 24 aircraft within three years.

Jetstar Japans A320s are configured in an all-economy layout with 180 seats. Each aircraft is powered by IAE V2500 engines.

We are extremely happy to take delivery of our brand new Airbus A320. With its wider seats and more spacious cabin than the competition, we are positioned to provide better value that our customers will appreciate as well as fast turnarounds, which is key to our business model, said Jetstar Japan President, Miyuki Suzuki. We aim to become the number one LCC in the Japanese market, and the A320 will help us achieve our goals.

Jetstar Japan, established in 2011, is a joint venture between the Qantas Group, Japan Airlines (JAL), Mitsubishi Corporation and Century Tokyo Leasing Corporation.

Jetstar Japans Airbus fleet is from an order for 110 A320 Family aircraft placed by the Qantas Group in October 2011.
