Travel News Asia Monday, 18 September 2006

Jetstar is to commence daily services between Australia and Singapore when it takes over existing Qantas Group operations on the Singapore Darwin Cairns route from 29 October 2006.

All ticketing for Jetstar services from Australia to Singapore will only be sold to international outbound passengers.

Jetstar will operate international services for the first time into Darwin and Cairns with the daily return flight and grow existing levels of Qantas Group international services through Cairns.

The new Jetstar international services will offer Qantas Codeshare customers a ground and inflight product that includes through passenger check-in and baggage interlining to Qantas domestic and international flights, a complimentary hot meal and full bar service.

Video on demand units will be available at a cost of A$10. All Qantas Club members flying Jetstar will have access to Qantas operated lounges where available at international airports. At Darwin International Airport, international departing passengers can use the domestic Qantas Club lounge.

Jetstar proposes to launch long haul international operations from 23 November 2006, initially to 6 international destinations from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.
