JETSTAR LAUNCHES LOW HAUL ROUTES

Jetstar, the budget unit of Qantas Airways, had made its first Singapore Melbourne flight, marking the beginning of its challenge to Singapore Airlines on long haul routes.

Jetstar confirmed that it sold more than half the 38 business-class seats for the 8:50 pm flight yesterday and almost all of coach. The low cost carrier will operate the daily service with an A330-200. Jetstar also plans to add Singapore-Auckland flights in March and other long-haul destinations in the second half of next year, Singapore Airlines (SIA), which operates 21 weekly return flights between the city state and Melbourne is running at around 45% higher on fares, so any future mention of a price war between the two will come at great cost to SIA.
