Dreamliner replaces Jetstar Airbus A330

Australian-based airline Jetstar will start replacing its Airbus A330s on all international routes with the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, according to the company’s new schedule. The last scheduled flight – for now – will be in mid-September.

Low-fares airline Jetstar just announced increased flights, with Cairns (Australia) – Bali (Indonesia) three times a week from 31 March, Melbourne (Australia) – Wellington (New Zealand) four times a week from 30 March and flights across the Australian continent (Gold Coast to Perth) back up from 29 March. At the end of December 2014 Jetstar introduced direct flights from Brisbane to Honolulu, the capital of the US State of Hawaii.

Jetstar Airways – the main company of the Jetstar Group – operates in Australia and New Zealand and is fully owned by Qantas. The group has four more daughter companies: Jetstar Asia based in Singapore, Jetstar Pacific based in Vietnam, Jetstar Japan and the start-up Jetstar Hong Kong. Collectively the Jetstar Group offers more than 4,000 flights a week to more than 60 destinations in 16 countries and territories across the Asia Pacific region. Jetstar branded airlines had a combined fleet of a 114 aircraft in September 2014, comprising of 97 Airbus A320-200s, six A321s, four Airbus A330-200s and seven Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners.
