Thursday, August 02, 2012 - Jetstar is offering Australians more choice in where they take a break, announcing additional international flights to its most popular island destinations and reinstatement of its direct Melbourne – Honolulu service.

The additional long-haul capacity will provide up to 19,000 extra seats a month for holidaymakers to overseas destinations. This follows previously-announced capacity increases to domestic leisure destinations including Cairns and the Gold Coast.

Jetstar’s Sydney to Phuket route will increase to four flights a week and services to Bali from Melbourne and Sydney will increase to daily.

Following strong market demand, Jetstar is reinstating its non-stop Melbourne – Honolulu route with three weekly return services to Hawaii.

Since 2008, Jetstar customers travelling to Honolulu have connected via Sydney.

These flights, on sale from today, start from 15 December 2012 and will use the airline’s A330 fleet.

Jetstar Group CEO, Jayne Hrdlicka, said the additional capacity was in response to strong customer demand and would take off in time for summer school holidays.

“Jetstar specialises in putting more holiday destinations within reach for more people through low fares, domestically and internationally,” Ms Hrdlicka said.  

“We’ve injected hundreds-of-thousands of additional seats into the Australian east coast for the next year and now we’re adding additional capacity to Bali, Phuket and Honolulu routes.

“As a business, by focusing on managing our costs and getting our price points right we’re able to tap into strong underlying travel demand with highly competitive fares and a great product.
