HKAC delivers one A320 to Jetstar Japan

Hong Kong Aviation Capital (HKAC) has delivered a new A320 to Jetstar Japan – the second of four A320 aircraft that it will lease to the airline.

It is the first aircraft in Jetstar Japan’s fleet, the first A320 aircraft in Japan as well as the first A320 in HKAC’s fleet equipped with sharklets.

Donal Boylan, CEO of HKAC said: “we are delighted to build on our significant relationship with the Jetstar Group as well as enhance our relationship with Jetstar Japan. Jetstar Japan has brought the low cost carrier (LCC) product in the Japanese market a significant step further, has had an excellent start in the first nine months of operation and is demonstrating the benefits of having strong and experienced shareholders. The sharklets make these aircraft more fuel efficient and we are very pleased to see this contribution to environmental improvement in Japan”.

“We are very happy to be the first operator of the latest version of the cost efficient A320 in Japan” Jetstar Japan President Miyuki Suzuki said. “The new Sharklet-equipped A320 will help us to save on fuel costs and allow us to continue to offer low fares to our customer.”

“We are delighted that Jetstar Japan has joined a growing list of operators of our A320 equipped with new fuel-saving Sharklet wing-tip devices”, said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “With a four percent fuel burn reduction, the A320 with Sharklets makes Jetstar Japan one of the most fuel efficient airlines and gives it huge competitive advantages in one of the world’s most challenging markets.”

Jetstar Japan started operations in July 2012. The company is a joint venture between the Qantas Group, Japan Airlines (JAL), Mitsubishi Corporation and Century Tokyo Leasing Corporation. Jetstar Japan operates an all-Airbus fleet of seven leased A320s, and this will grow to 24 aircraft by the end of 2014.
