As one of the fastest-growing airlines in the Asia Pacific region, Jetstar has achieved a lot since its launch in 2004.
In nine years, for example, it has carried more than 100 million passengers, and only last week, its fleet increased to 100 aircraft for the first time.
Of course, such a milestone needed to be celebrated in a special way, so Jetstar decided to paint a special 100th aircraft livery on its newest Sharklet-equipped Airbus A320 aircraft.
Check out the YouTube slideshow I created with images of the aircraft (below) and there’s a whole photo album on my Facebook page – click here to view them.
As you’ll notice, the livery features 132 people doing the Jetstar star jump, including passengers and ambassadors from across Asia Pacific region.
Each person represents one of Jetstar’s five branded airlines… which consists of Jetstar Airways (subsidiary of the Qantas Group) in Australia and New Zealand, Jetstar Asia in Singapore, Jetstar Pacific in Vietnam and Jetstar Japan in Japan.
According to Jetstar Group Chief Executive Officer Jayne Hrdlicka, this ‘100 aircraft’ milestone was only possible because of the 400,000 passengers who travel with the Jetstar Group each week.
“With the benefit of our common fleet, we’re able to carry more people, to more places, more often than any other low cost airline in Australia,” commented Ms Hrdlicka.
“While many airlines have tried their hand in the Australian low fares market, Jetstar has been the mainstay for the best priced fares since launching in 2004.”
