Jetstar No. 9

Jetstar’s ninth New Zealand-based Airbus A320 took to the skies this week, and its domestic New Zealand schedule has been boosted by more than 50,000 new seats a month on flights between Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and on some new trans-Tasman flights from Queenstown. The new schedule with the extra Airbus A320 aircraft adds 20 additional weekly return services between Auckland and Wellington and seven new weekly return services between Auckland and Christchurch and between Wellington and Christchurch. David Hall, CEO Jetstar Australia and New
Zealand, said that since Jetstar began domestic services nearly one million people had flown within New Zealand for under $50 and three million for under $100. Additional Jetstar trans-Tasman services to Queenstown also begin this week, with new Saturday flights into the alpine resort from Melbourne and Sydney adding up to 600 new seats a week to support South Island tourism. Introducing the ninth New Zealand-based Jetstar aircraft has resulted in 50 new jobs for Kiwis including pilots, cabin crew, and ground crew.
On the way back from Timaru I ran into a friend at Wellington airport and was having a beer with him when in pulled a new Jetstar Airbus 320 (for me anyway)... upon reflection it might say something about my values: aeroplanes, friends, beer. VH-VFF at Wellington on 15 November 2012.
