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.
