Jetstar Asia eyes new routes

24 Aug 2009

Jetstar Asia is negotiating with aviation authorities to expand its network, with China, India and Laos among potential new destinations.

Chief executive officer of the low-cost carrier Chong Phit Lian told the Australian Associated Press that: “There’s still China we haven’t flown to, there’s still India we haven’t flown to, and Laos we haven’t flown to.”

“So I would say that if you look at the map with the ‘five-hour region’ these are the additional places that we would probably have the opportunity to talk to.”

“Based on the current market – and the (Asian) markets that we have been surveying – Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Indochina, such as Cambodia, will be opportunities for us in terms of growth,” she said.

Singapore-based Jetstar Asia currently has a fleet of seven Airbus A320 aircraft. Its existing Asian destinations include, Mynamar, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Cambodia, Macau, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan.
