I know it's kind of offtopic, but I think it'd be much more politically correct not to include Taipei as a part of China since practically Taiwan and China are two separate countries.

As for the airline. Do they plan to launch any flights to Europe? Or at least expand their Japan routes?

They are okay, Im a frequent flyer with Valuair in the CGK-SIN sector. If you dont mind to add another $SGD25 to seat upfront because much better to seat there.

Anyway, its pretty much the same with AirAsia but you get free mineral water and a cupcake so i never ordered food on board.

cheers

This is the reason why Jetstar retains the Valuair brand to Indonesia. For some reason, Singapore budget carriers aren't allowed to fly to Indonesia unless they market themselves as a 'boutique' carrier, hence on Tiger and Jetstar's flights to Indonesia, you'll receive some form of service like a drink (SIN-CGK is 1.5 hrs), newspapers and a snack.

However, this doesn't seem to apply if its a JQ-code flight because Australian carriers are allowed to fly Australia-SIN via any point in Indonesia.

I think JQ should give the A340 a crack at maybe some ultra long-haul flights like MEL>JNB, YVR, EZE, NRT & SFO.

Apparently Jetstar Pacific isnt allowed to use 'Jetstar' in it's name because it's too Australian? Also they tried to block Air Asia from VietJet Air Asia also. why becuase it's too Asian???

Very good points made!

The civil aviation authorities of Vietnam must despise foreign investment, because by retaining their existing Airline name, it has more of a Vietnamese identity; even though the airlines have a board which makes executive decisions with people from the JV, ie Malaysia and Australia, and is funded as such as a JV.

Jetstar adds to Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney flights

Quote:
JETSTAR says its planned 30 per cent increase to capacity in 2010-11 will see a significant jump in the number of flights out of Melbourne and Sydney.

Jetstar, which is wholly owned by Qantas Airways Ltd, says an additional 45 flights a week out of the cities will be added from December.

Adelaide will be the main beneficiary, with Jetstar to operate 21 flights a week on the Melbourne-Adelaide and Sydney-Adelaide routes.

Jetstar group chief executive Bruce Buchanan says the airline is now at record capacity for Adelaide.
Mr Buchanan said the extra services would support tourism, as well as give South Australians the opportunity to connect to Jetstar's growing networks through Asia and New Zealand via either Melbourne or Sydney.

"This new capacity is in direct response to demand in key Jetstar ports, and demonstrates Jetstar's ongoing commitment to offering our customers even more low fares, greater frequencies and convenient schedules," Mr Buchanan said.

Among the other changes, Sydney-Brisbane will move to four flights a day and Melbourne-Brisbane will increase to three a day.

Extra flights will also be provided from Sydney to Townsville and Ballina, and from Melbourne to Newcastle.

Adelaide's boost comes after Tiger Airways said it would discontinue flights from the city to Brisbane and the Gold Coast from November.

Also, Jetstar's announcement comes after Virgin Blue chief executive John Borghetti said his airline would increase capacity across its domestic network by six to 10 per cent in 2010-11.

And Virgin Blue will also introduce wide-body Airbus A330s for flights to Perth from Sydney and Melbourne.
The Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation said there was "domestic bloodbath in the offing in 2011".

"With his declaration that he would match Qantas' A330 offerings in the Australian domestic market next year, Mr Borghetti has also firmed the prospect of another battle for supremacy in the Australian domestic market next year," it said in a research note dated August 26.

Jetstar to introduce world-first mobile phone check-in developed by 23-year-old Aussie

BUDGET airline Jetstar will next month offer world-first technology which will allow passengers to check in by simply swiping their cell phone under a scanner.

Jetstar is introducing the hi-tech system in New Zealand Thursday and at Australian airports next month. It will operate at 18 Australian airports by Christmas.

The system is a triumph for self-taught Melbourne computer guru Aaron Hornlimann, 23, as his system is attracting keen demand from other airlines.

India's four airlines also have signed up with the Melbourne-based computer developer for airport trials beginning in November.

Hornlimann's system goes live in New Zealand Thursday where Jetstar passengers boarding flights at Auckland will be able to claim their boarding passes simply by placing the screen on their cell phone beneath a scanner.

Under the system a boarding pass and unique code are transmitted to any cell phone and passengers need need only to have the SMS message on their phone scanned at a check-in tower before boarding an aircraft.

Jetstar to be bigger than Virgin Blue, says Alan Joyce
September 23, 2010 10:43AM

QANTAS chief Alan Joyce has declared that low-cost offshoot Jetstar will be bigger than rival Virgin Blue within five years.

Speaking to high-profile business leaders yesterday, Mr Joyce pointed out that Jetstar was already making a bigger profit than its Brisbane-based competitor and was banking on reaping even bigger rewards in Asia.

His Lowy Institute speech was a thinly veiled attack on Virgin chief John Borghetti and his plans to grow Virgin by forming multi-national alliances and making in-flight cabin services more appealing to high-yield business travellers.

But Mr Joyce, who had previously refrained from exchanging shots with his former Qantas colleague, made it clear that Mr Borghetti would need to do something very special to woo high-paying suits away from the free drinks and meals service they get on Qantas.

"The advantage of having a clearly focused low-fares carrier is that we can differentiate Qantas more than ever as a leading premium airline," Mr Joyce told the audience, adding that by having a low-fares offshoot Qantas could operate as a leading premium airline.

And Mr Joyce also let it be known that Qantas was not prepared to sit back and allow Virgin Blue a lucrative share of the premium market.

He outlined a string of major investments now in motion, including a new generation check-in system, new lounges and fit-out of ageing interiors of the 747 fleet to A380 standard "to make Qantas the most desirable premium airline in the world".

But he said the group was counting on Jetstar, not the flying kangaroo's still-struggling long-haul operation, to generate future profits in Asia.

"Access to Asian opportunities is much harder for us to achieve with Qantas, and obviously we recognise the constraints imposed by the limitations on foreign capital in the Qantas Sale Act," he said.

"It is an incredible opportunity for Australia and for Qantas, to be living near the centre of the aviation universe," Mr Joyce said, acknowledging that pan-Asian growth was not without significant risks, from political and economic to cultural issues.

He said that for first movers like Jetstar, which flies to 17 different Asian destinations, the rewards are "potentially enormous".

"We are taking the risks, because we believe we can manage them, and because we want the rewards."
