Connecting our three largest operations in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore strengthens each of these businesses and builds a solid foundation for future growth beyond Singapore to North Asia and Europe, Mr Buchanan said.

Jetstar will employ up to 200 new aviation jobs across its growing pan Asian network including Pilots, Cabin Crew, Engineers and Airport Customer Service staff through this growth.
