JETSTAR'S subsidiaries will commence domestic flights to new destinations in Asia – Buon Ma Thuot in the Central Highlands of Vietnam and Matsuyama in Japan.
Beginning March 26, Jetstar Pacific will operate five-times-weekly flights from Ho Chi Minh City and thrice-weekly flights from Vinh to Buon Ma Thuot.
On June 11, Jetstar Japan will launch daily flights out of Tokyo’s Narita International Airport to Matsuyama in Ehime Prefecture, but will adjust frequencies to 21 weekly flights after July 25 and 16 weekly flights after September 24.
The new service follows the announcement of new flights to Oita, Nagoya and Kagoshima made earlier this year (TTG Asia e-Daily, January 24, 2013).
Jetstar Group’s CEO, Jayne Hrdlicka, said introducing first-time LCC services to new markets previously only served by full-service carriers continued to be a key part of the group’s pan-Asian growth strategy.
