CASA Approves Jetstar 787 Operations

Jetstar Airways has gained approval from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) to begin Boeing 787 aircraft operations. CASA has authorised the addition of the first 787 to Jetstar’s fleet, with more aircraft to be added progressively. CASA’s Director of Aviation Safety, John McCormick, said the approval was a landmark in Australian aviation. “It is not often we introduce new large aircraft types into Australian aviation so it takes a lot of work by the airline and by CASA,” he said.
