First Q300 in Jetstar livery for NZ
The first of five Jetstar Q300 turbo-prop aircraft to be painted in Jetstar livery rolled out of the paint shop in Townsville this week in preparation for regional services in New Zealand later this year.
The aircraft were formerly used by QantasLink and will be the first turbo-props to fly under the Jetstar brand.
In addition to the new livery, the Q300s are being given an interior refresh to match the Jetstar onboard product.
Further details of the new services, including the four regional destinations they’ll be flying to in New Zealand, will be announced in a few weeks.
Regional New Zealand flights on the Q300s will be operated by Eastern Australia Airlines for Jetstar Airways.
