“The ACCC’s ruling supports our objective for Jetstar airlines to work together to create a truly regional network and a consistent experience for passengers by opening up new travel opportunities and delivering lower fares for customers on the Jetstar network,” Ms Hrdlicka said.
The Jetstar Group consists of Jetstar Airways in Australia and New Zealand, Jetstar Asia in Singapore, Jetstar Pacific in Vietnam, Jetstar Japan and launching in 2013 subject to regulatory approval, Jetstar Hong Kong.
