Jetstar Asia announces partnership with Qantas Freight

Jetstar Asia has initiated a partnership with Qantas Freight to provide customers with increased connectivity and greater access to the wider Qantas Group network and Qantas Freight’s 130 partners.

Under the partnership, Qantas Freight will manage Jetstar Asia’s freight capacity across 23 ports in 13 markets, effective 20 November.

Jetstar is based in Singapore and operates a fleet of 18 Airbus A320 aircraft, each carrying up to two and a half tonnes of cargo per flight.

Jetstar Asia CEO Barathan Pasupathi said: “With more than 600 departures a week from Changi Airport, Jetstar Asia’s freight customers can look forward to outstanding service with the new Qantas Freight partnership.

“With a reliable schedule of services to 23 ports from Singapore, the new partnership will ensure our customers enjoy wider connectivity and more direct access through our integrated Qantas Group network of more than 110 markets in Australia, Asia, Europe and the US.

“As the only low fares airline operating services from Singapore to numerous Asia-Pacific destinations like Okinawa, Darwin, Medan and Siem Reap, Qantas freight customers will also benefit from direct access to fresh markets previously unavailable to them.”

Qantas Freight carried 90,000 tonnes of goods across Asia in the year ending June 2019, including food, fresh produce and other commodities.
