The Jetstar Group has welcomed the decision of the Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS) allowing coordination between Jetstar-branded airlines across the Asia Pacific region.
This decision is an important step in enabling Jetstar Airways, Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan, Jetstar Pacific and Jetstar Hong Kong to collaborate to deliver more choice, a more expansive network and an aligned customer experience.
Jetstar Group Chief Executive Jayne Hrdlicka said Singaporean customers would see great benefits from the decision.
“The CCS’s decision supports our objective for Jetstar airlines to work together to create a truly regional network by opening up new travel opportunities across the Jetstar network and providing access to lower fares for our customers,” Ms Hrdlicka said.
