Jetstar To Launch New Domestic Routes

Jetstar Japan has announced three new domestic destinations. It will start flying from Tokyo to Oita, Fukuoka to Nagoya and Sapporo to Nagoya from March 31 with return flights to Kagoshima from Tokyo and Nagoya starting on May 31. Jayne Hrdlicka, CEO of Jetstar Group, said that the new destinations were added in response to strong customer demand. “The popularity of our low fares in the first six months of flying highlights just how much Japanese travellers have embraced low-cost flying,” Hrdlicka said. “Our new services to Oita, Nagoya and Kagoshima will help stimulate demand by making air travel more accessible to more passengers in these areas and also encourage tourists to visit the regions.” In addition to the new routes, Jetstar Japan will operate another three return trips between Tokyo and Sapporo. The airline currently has a fleet of seven A320s and is planning to grow to 24 aircraft in the next few years. It will take delivery of two A320s in February.
