Noticed this at the bottom on this from last month, does this mean Jetstar will increase to 7x Q300s this year?
Wonder if it will be extra routes or extra capacity on current routes?
Surely they would want to get in on the AKL-TRG market, NZ seems to be doing pretty well there with ATR's now on peak services.
If 3 more q300s are transferred JQ
would have 8 in total as 5 were to be transferred to propstar NZ (3 at the end of 2015 and 2 in early 2016) when the regional services where announced. However the article states 3 will be added in the second half of the 2015/2016 financial year which I take to mean the 2 that were added Jan/Feb 2016 + 1 additional aircraft.
Other options for routes might be expanding from WLG
as currently they only service NSN
from there. Perhaps NPE-WLG
, both of which wouldn't require any new ports to be set up, but still are likely to be profitable routes. WLG
might also be on the cards as HLZ
was one of JQ
's possible 7 destinations. A long shot would be setting up services through CHC
-IVC). Also considering that TRG
wasn't on their original destinations up for consideration (Tauranga council presented to JQ
might be more likely to commence first if JQ
wants to continue to expand its AKL
