I think that Jetstar is bound to start doing long-haul flights eventually. If they can maintain their status as a cheaper carrier, they'll always do well in Australia.

I look forward to seeing what they can come up with in the future.

Actually there are aircrafts that can fly the distance as Singapore Airlines flys direct to Newark with the A340-500 but i doubt any Asian budget carrier will fly direct to New York.

Nope. The flight to New York(JFK) has a stopover in Frankfurt but not the one to Newark(EWR). I think you couldnt see the Newark flight because you need to change the class to Business Class as SQ doesnt offer Suites, First or Economy class on that route.

Jetstar slashes flights to Tokyo
Matt O'sullivan
March 21, 2011


QANTAS'S budget offshoot, Jetstar, is cutting flights between Australia and Japan, its most important long-haul destination, because of a fall in demand from Japanese travellers.

Jetstar will halve the number of services between Australia and Tokyo from today to seven a week, after redeploying the ''lion's share'' of flights to Osaka due to ''operational issues'' and fewer people wanting to fly to the Japanese capital amid fears about the crisis at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

The budget airline will maintain a total of 25 flights a week between Australia and Japan but conceded yesterday that there could be ''some lessening of capacity'' in the longer term.
Advertisement: Story continues below

Jetstar will bear the brunt of a longer-term slump in travellers because, over the past four years, it has taken over from its parent the majority of flights on the route. Qantas now has only 10 flights a week to Japan.

About 80 per cent of the passengers on Jetstar flights between the two countries are Japanese.

Travel agents have reported cancellation rates of about 50 per cent for bookings by Japanese tourists for trips to Australia since the earthquake and tsunami on March 11.

A downturn in demand from Japanese travellers creates additional headaches for Qantas and Jetstar executives, who already face jet-fuel prices hovering near a three-year high.

A CBA Equities analyst, Matt Crowe, said a fall in demand for flights on the route would have a material impact on Jetstar's listed parent, Qantas.

''I don't think it will be as material as the Queensland floods but it will be material,'' he said.

Qantas has estimated the floods will cut $55 million from its pre-tax profits in the second half.

Mr Crowe said there was likely to be a significant fall in passengers on the route once the immediate rush by people to leave Japan because of the disasters abated.

Shares in Qantas rose 1¢ to $2.10 yesterday, slightly above a 20-month low reached last week.

Qantas said demand for its flights to Japan had been affected by the disasters but until events stabilised it would be difficult to calculate the impact.

Jetstar and Qantas have gained an estimated $500 million a year in revenue from the Japan-Australia route.

Air New Zealand also warned last week that it would post a second-half loss due to the impact of high fuel prices and the Christchurch and Japanese earthquakes. Its shares slipped 1¢ to 83.5¢ yesterday.

Jetstar invests US$500m in Singapore hub
By Stella Lee | Posted: 15 July 2011 1833 hrs

SINGAPORE: Budget airline Jetstar Asia invested US$500 million in its Singapore operations to buy seven new airbus jets.

They are five A320s and two A330s.

The airline said it plans to expand routes for North Asia, particularly in China, as the market for low cost flights in Southeast Asia is reaching saturation, according to its group CEO Bruce Buchanan.

He said: "That to us is a big signal. That it's a great opportunity as income levels continue to rise, as we put low cost carrier capacity into the markets we are going to see the same effects that we saw in Southeast Asia. "

Industry observers, like Leithen Francis, asia editor of Aviation Week, viewed its China expansion plans positively due to a weak low cost carrier presence on the mainland.

New services announced on Friday include additional flights to Taipei, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh City and Jakarta.

Jetstar hopes to maintain its market share of the Asia low cost carrier market at about 20 per cent, needing as many as 400 aircraft by 2020, and forsees the market growing four to five times by the end of the decade.

It currently has a fleet of 78 planes.

Jetstar hopes to have more than 3,000 flights a week to over 60 destinations across 17 countries, by the end of the year.

Jetstar's new North Asia focus leaves room for Qantas Singapore expansion to Europe and India
16th July, 2011

© Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation

Jetstar is planning to expand its Singapore-based fleet by 50% over the next six months as the low-cost carrier group looks to North Asia for the next phase of its dramatic expansion. As the largest low-cost airline group in the Asia-Pacific region continues to expand at a clip of about 20% per annum, additional capacity will not be directed west towards South Asia, the Middle East or Europe but primarily to North Asia, where Jetstar sees the most opportunities given North Asia’s very low LCC penetration rate. This strategy could signal growth for the Qantas brand in South Asia and Europe as the group looks at potentially announcing next month the launch of a new Singapore-based full-service carrier.

The Jetstar Group announced at a press conference in Singapore on 15-Jul-2011 plans to add five A320s and two A330s to its Singapore Changi-based fleet in 2H2011. As a result, the Singapore-based fleet at Jetstar Group will grow from 12 to 17 A320s and from two to four A330s by the end of 2011.

One of the additional A330s will be used to open in Nov-2011 the daily Singapore-Beijing service which was announced by Jetstar earlier this week. The fourth A330 will be used to launch a route not yet announced, which CAPA expects could be Shanghai.

The five additional A320s are to be used in part to expand capacity on six existing routes from Singapore - Denpasar Bali, Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Taipei (see background information for details). The additional Singapore-based A320s will also be used to launch services to Hanoi and Ningbo - both routes were recently announced - as well as at least two other new unannounced cities, which CAPA expects could be Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

Jetstar has secured slots and traffic rights for Singapore-Shanghai route
The already announced flights to Beijing and Ningbo will give Jetstar’s Singapore hub six destinations in mainland China and nine destinations in greater China. Jetstar has indicated it plans to grow its greater China network to 12 destinations by year-end. Jetstar Group CEO Bruce Buchanan told CAPA that in addition to Beijing, Jetstar has already secured slots and traffic rights for Shanghai Pudong and Shenzhen. While it has not yet finalised arrangements or announced these services, CAPA expects Shanghai and Shenzhen are high on Jetstar’s list and could be launched by the end of this year.

Singapore-Guangzhou would be another logical new route for Jetstar as Guangzhou is one of China’s largest airports and fastest growing cities. If Jetstar adds Shanghai Pudong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou along with Beijing it will be serving four of China’s five largest airports. The other top five Chinese airport is Shanghai Hongqiao, which is primarily a domestic airport that is not accessible by any carrier from Singapore.

Shanghai Pudong would represent another breakthrough for Jetstar as, like Beijjing, the airport currently only has international low-cost services to the Philippines. Cebu Pacific serves both Shanghai and Beijing while another Philippine low-cost carrier, Zest Air, also serves Shanghai. Other foreign low-cost carriers, including AirAsia X, have so far failed to gain access to Beijing and Shanghai.

Singapore-Shanghai and Singapore-Beijing are currently only served by only two carriers. With its new Beijing service, Jetstar will finally be breaking the Air China-Singapore Airlines duopoly while on the Singapore-Shanghai route it would break the China Eastern-Singapore Airlines duopoly. Shanghai is one of only two routes among Singapore Changi's largest 10 routes that currently does not have any low-cost competition. The other route is Singapore-London.

Australia's Jetstar denies exploiting Thai staff
http://news.yahoo.com/australias-jet...071307831.html


A member of staff unveils a sign advertising reduced price tickets on JetStar in Singapore. Budget Australian carrier Jetstar strongly denied claims Thursday that it was exploiting foreign cabin crew and overworking its staff following reports of 20-hour shifts

Budget Australian carrier Jetstar strongly denied claims Thursday that it was exploiting foreign cabin crew and overworking its staff following reports of 20-hour shifts.

The airline said it took fatigue "extremely seriously" and denied "it forces cabin crew to operate when fatigued" after former and current staff and pilots told ABC television flight attendants were overburdened.

Foreign crews based in Bangkok were especially vulnerable, according to the ABC report, with open-ended employment contracts stating the maximum 20-hour shift could be extended and punitive exit clauses.

Jetstar chief Bruce Buchanan said a lot of the claims were "completely false and we completely deny them."

"The claims about slave labour and the claims that we pay these people a pittance -- our salaries in Thailand for instance, we are paying these people Aus$20,000-$30,000 a year in Thailand. That ranks in the top few percent of salaries in that country," Buchanan told ABC television.

Contracts obtained by the ABC for Jetstar's Thai staff set a shift limit of 20 hours but stipulates that the "planned limit and operational extensions may be extended by the employer".

They get paid just Aus$258 ($285) per month and $7 for every hour they fly, plus allowances, ABC said, with penalties of up to 4.5 months of their base wage if they quit early or are sacked.

Australia's minimum wage is Aus$590 per week.

Buchanan said Jetstar was "competing in Asia" and in line with local conditions, with two-thirds of its 3,000 flights per week to 17 countries in and around Asia and one-third of its staff from the region.

ABC said there had been almost 40 fatigue complaints from staff on Jetstar's long-haul domestic routes in Australia, with some expressing concern that they would be ill-equipped to handle an emergency after lengthy shifts.

One former Australian crewman told ABC he "felt like a slave" on the round trip from Sydney to the Indonesian island of Bali, with a 15-hour overnight shift, which could easily become 20 hours with delays.

Though Jetstar did not roster anyone for 15-hour stretches Buchanan said there "were situations where people do extend" and fatigue management was a joint responsibility of the company and the individual.

"Look at the hard facts -- our cabin crew work an average of 24 hours a week and you can't do too many 20 hour shifts (in a 24-hour week)," he said.

Jetstar chief information officer, Stephen Tame.

Q&A: Jetstar CIO
http://www.cio.com.au/article/398890...r_cio/#closeme
Hamish Barwick (CIO)29 August, 2011

What does an average work day involve for you at Jetstar?

Tame: As the fastest growing low-cost carrier in Asia Pacific, comprising four independent airlines businesses, 95 per cent of my time is the management and delivery of the Jetstar business programs and outsourced service suppliers.

A large percentage of this is in developing and mentoring the suppliers to deliver quality and cost outcomes back into the business. The remaining five per cent is allocated to our business and IT innovation programs. This makes the rest of the day’s investments worthwhile.

What are some of the major challenges you face in the role of CIO?

Like every business, my challenges are managing capital, cost and carbon. Depending on what is included, IT represents between two per cent and seven per cent of the world’s CO2 emissions.

The additional challenge I have is to respond to an agile organisation. I am focusing less on building architecture and long-term strategies, and more on the delivery of business agility, creativity, capability and options.

What are some of the major projects you have been working on?

Setting up the core business systems and platforms to scale the Jetstar business franchise.

Further rollout of the Asia Pacific points of presence for voice and data.
Virtualizing the voice/PABX offering.

Designing the PC on a memory card to finally complete virtualization down to the appliance.

What are the three biggest issues facing CIOs today?

Delivering agility, flexibility and commoditisation through leadership and across the IT/business organisation.

What is your favourite gadget?

At this stage, the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tab.

More than 1.2 million passengers fly Jetstar in 2010/11
http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/BU110...-in-201011.htm
Monday, 29 August 2011, 12:31 pm
Press Release: Jetstar
29 August 2011

Auckland


More than 1.2 million passengers fly Jetstar

within New Zealand in 2010/11


New figures show the number of people choosing to fly on Jetstar’s domestic New Zealand network increased by 5 per cent during the 2011 financial year.


Jetstar Australia & New Zealand CEO David Hall said the low fares leader carried in excess of 1.23 million passengers between its four New Zealand ports in 2010/11.


“We’re really pleased to see more people taking advantage of our lower fares, which have made it easier to travel around New Zealand,” said Mr Hall.


“The fact we’ve been able to grow our presence in the New Zealand domestic market despite several natural disasters shows the underlying strength of our business.


“It’s a result we intend to build on by keeping our fares low, improving service and fine-tuning our schedules to match the needs and wants of the New Zealand market.”


The airline’s total share of the New Zealand domestic market, bolstered by the introduction of two additional A320 aircraft during 2010/11, is now 20 per cent just two years after start up.


The Jetstar Group as a whole – including its international and Australian domestic operations – carried almost 19 million passengers in 2010/11, an increase of 14 per cent on the previous year. Earnings before tax and interest were up 29% to a record AUD$169 million.


Without the disproportionate number of natural disasters that acutely affected its operations, the Jetstar Group’s earnings would have been $85 million higher.


KEY FACTS – JETSTAR DOMESTIC NZ OPERATIONS IN 2010/11

• Carried 1.23 million passengers

• Flew a total of 960 million available seat kilometres

• Flight capacity an average of 80% full

• Added two A320s to existing NZ fleet (total of 8)

• Launched domestic flights to Dunedin, Jetstar’s 5th domestic port

• Launched NZ’s first low cost long-haul route (Auckland-Singapore) and 4 new trans-tasman routes

Additional information on the Jetstar Group and Qantas Group results available here.

Jetstar unveils new routes, services
Posted: 11 January 2012 0751 hrs

SINGAPORE: Jetstar on Tuesday announced new routes and services, which would add 8,500 seats weekly for the budget carrier's hub here.

The extra capacity includes more than 40 new weekly services added to destinations in Australia, Japan, Vietnam and China.

Jetstar announced a second daily service on the Singapore-Taipei-Osaka route and three new weekly services between Singapore and Darwin, bringing the weekly flights to 10.

As part of network changes announced Tuesday, Jetstar will suspend services between Singapore and Macau from February 5.

The addition of services on popular routes would be crucial in helping the budget carrier build up a "critical mass" across the Asia-Pacific, said Jetstar Group chief executive Bruce Buchanan.

He added: "The growth in low-fare services from our Singapore hub is creating new travel demand in the region, which then fuels more growth and gives us economies of scale to keep the low fares coming."

While the budget carrier will be focusing on building its Vietnam presence and a new network with Jetstar Japan, Mr Buchanan said the goal is to be the "No 1 low-cost carrier in all of the markets" it operates in.

Jetstar to boost presence in Singapore
Karamjit Kaur
The Straits Times
Publication Date : 13-01-2012


Budget airline Jetstar is taking key steps to firmly establish Singapore as its main business and operations hub.

It shifted its information technology centre from Melbourne to Singapore a year ago, and its global sales team will make a similar move in the coming weeks, group chief executive officer Bruce Buchanan said.

Jetstar, which operates three carriers - in Australia, Singapore and Vietnam - is also finalising plans to build its own aircraft hangar at Changi Airport.

Mr Buchanan knows that aircraft engineers, technicians and other industry stakeholders in Australia are not going to be happy with the plans. For some time now, they have been complaining about Jetstar's Asian focus, which they say has resulted in jobs leaving the country.

It is a "sensitive political issue", Mr Buchanan told The Straits Times in an interview yesterday.

And he insisted the airline is still very much committed to Australia, where two-thirds of its total global workforce of about 7,000 people are based.

Citing an example, he said that when the new hangar in Singapore is up and running, possibly by 2014, the airline's current facility in Newcastle, Australia will not close, but will continue to maintain Jetstar's aircraft.

But while Jetstar will remain in Australia, he said, the reality is that Asia is where the growth is - and to cash in on the boom in the aviation industry, Jetstar's centre of gravity must be in the region. "It is a natural evolution," Mr Buchanan said. "We can't be a Western or Australian-centric company if we want to grow and achieve success."

The opportunities in Asia are mind- boggling, he said. In China alone, there are nearly 100 cities which Jetstar could consider as destinations in the next three to five years. Currently, it serves 10 Chinese destinations from its Singapore hub.

Jetstar has big plans in the coming years, Mr Buchanan revealed.

Next year, it will take delivery of its first few Boeing 787 Dreamliners, and while plans have not been confirmed, it is possible that at least one of them could be based in Singapore.

The new hangar planned for Changi will be able to service both single-aisle and wide-bodied aircraft like the Airbus 330 and, eventually, the B-787.

Several options are being considered for the new facility, Mr Buchanan said. Jetstar could decide to build and operate it on its own, or work with a partner - possibly Shaeco, a Singapore subsidiary of a Hong Kong aircraft repair and maintenance firm, or ST Aerospace.

Both firms currently maintain Jetstar's fleet in Singapore.

The airline's decision to firmly plant its flag in Singapore is an important feather in the cap for Singapore's aviation sector, industry watchers said. Mr Buchanan did not say how much will be invested in Singapore in the coming years, but experts reckon it will be more than half a billion dollars, including the cost of the new aircraft to be based here.

The airline currently has about 1,000 employees in Singapore and 20 planes parked at Changi Airport.

Headcount is expected to grow by up to 200 a year over the next few years.

A spokesman for Changi Airport Group, Mr Ivan Tan, said: "We look forward to working with the airline to enhance its hub operations at Changi Airport."

149 passengers of budget carrier, Jetstar Asia, had their travel plans disrupted when their flight from China's Guangzhou to Singapore was delayed three times.

The flight, 3K842, was due to depart at about 1:20 a.m. on June 11. But the airline said the flight was delayed due to an operational issue and that a new part had to be flown in to fix the problem.


Passengers were apparently told that the flight would depart later, at 7:00 p.m. on the same day, but it was again delayed.


They were later given another flight time.


Jetstar said the aircraft is now scheduled to depart on Tuesday at 10:00 p.m.


It said it provided all passengers with accommodation and meal vouchers.
It also offered a full refund, a free change of flight date or re-accommodation on the delayed service.


Jetstar said it'll also issue a formal letter of apology and offer a voucher of S$200 to all affected passengers.


Some frustrated passengers decided to take other flights.
Jetstar said 39 of them will be fully reimbursed for their new airfares.
Passengers Channel NewsAsia contacted said they were not happy with the lack of information on their flight.



One of the affected passengers, Mr Ong Kim Chuan, said he had to take another flight back to Singapore.


"We have no choice but to go to Hong Kong and take another flight (Tiger Airways) back to Singapore, which caused us a lot of inconvenience. Jetstar staff did not show any resourcefulness and did not hold up to their responsibility," said Mr Ong.


Another passenger Mr Andrew Chia said the situation was quite chaotic.


"We got different stories from everyone. At that point of time, it was quite chaotic because many of us did not know exactly how we could get back to Singapore. Some of them even heard that Jetstar did not have any more available flights and that the next available flight is on Thursday at 1:20 a.m. Some of them were quite shaken. I had to make a quick decision, because I'm very late for some appointments back in Singapore."

Jetstar Hong Kong, the budget airline being formed by China Eastern Airlines and Qantas, could be operating before year-end, earlier than previously expected.

Senior managers for the airline, part of Qantas's Jetstar franchise chain, will be recruited from Hong Kong and other places in the region, China Eastern Chairman Liu Shaoyong told the annual general meeting of the International Air Transport Association this week in Beijing.

Noting that Jetstar Hong Kong currently is applying for an air operator's certificate (AOC), Liu says, "At the earliest, it will begin operations late this year or in the first half of next year."

China Eastern and Qantas initially stated that the startup would launch in 2013 when they unveiled their joint venture in March. At that time, the two operators said they would have equal shares in Jetstar Hong Kong, which would have up to US$198 million in capital.


If certification is granted, Jetstar Hong Kong will begin service with three Airbus A320s. This fleet will increase to 18 by 2015.


China Eastern's Liu says it has not been determined if Jetstar Hong Kong will operate into mainland China.

Jetstar Hong Kong will follow the multi-national franchising model used by rivals Tiger Airways and Air Asia, which established carriers in different countries with local shareholders while sharing the brand, websites and information systems.

Qantas also is setting up Jetstar Japan with Japan Airlines. That airline is due to begin services next month, five months ahead of schedule, also with three A320s as an initial fleet.

SINGAPORE-CAIRNS FLIGHTS TO RESUME
Tony Bartlett, AAP Tourism Writer, AAP
June 19, 2012, 3:21 pm


Direct flights from Singapore to Cairns are set to resume after a six-year hiatus.

AAP understands an announcement will be made at the state government's Destination Q conference in the far north Queensland city next week.

The last direct flight from Singapore to Cairns was operated by the Qantas-owned Australian Airlines in June 2006.

Jetstar would operate the new flight.

Tourism Tropical North Queensland chief Rob Jason says there's been a lot of speculation the service might resume.

"I'm not aware of any pending announcement but we've been working to re-develop a direct link with Singapore, it's certainly one of our key goals in aviation," he told AAP.

Mr Jason said direct flights from the tourist hub would bring immense benefits.

"Not only for the opportunity of linking with Europe and the UK, but also the growing Chinese and Indian markets," he said.

Mr Jason would welcome government support of the service initially, as "stimulus" to get the market moving.

Queensland Tourism Minister Jann Stuckey says the government's $8 million attracting aviation investment fund is wooing a number of new airlines and working on expanding existing services.

"Discussions with Jetstar are ongoing and therefore commercial confidence remains in place," she told AAP on Monday.

"However, the government is hopeful of a positive outcome."

Jetstar would not confirm an announcement was pending.

"Jetstar is often assessing different route options as part of our growing network and we never add weight to one option over another by commenting on speculation about where we might fly next," it said.
