Jetstar welcomes ACCC approval for Airline Coordination in Asia Pacific

The Jetstar Group has welcomed the final determination of the ACCC approving coordination between Jetstar-branded airlines across the Asia Pacific region.

The decision is an important step in enabling Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan, Jetstar Pacific and Jetstar Hong Kong to collaborate to deliver lower fares, a more expansive network and a singular customer experience.

Jetstar Group Chief Executive Jayne Hrdlicka said Australian customers would see great benefits from the decision.

“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.
