JETSTAR today announced it would halt operations on the Singapore-Auckland route due to poor performance.
The thrice-weekly flight, which began in March 2011, will run its last leg on July 21.
Commented a Jetstar spokesman in a statement released to the media: “Jetstar Airways is always keen to bring competition to monopoly routes and for the past three years has provided a low fares choice on the Singapore-Auckland route.”
“Unfortunately the route has not performed as we would have liked and we have decided that the capacity could be put to better use on other routes,” said the spokesman.
Passengers who have purchased tickets on the route beyond July 21 will be offered the choice of a full refund, moving their flights forward or transferring to a connecting service via Australia.
The airline will contact passengers starting next week.
