Jetstar Airways Reviews

Jetstar Airways is an Australian low-cost airline (self-described as “value based”) headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Qantas, created in response to the threat posed by low-cost airline Virgin Blue. Jetstar is part of Qantas’ two brand strategy of having Qantas Airways for the premium full-service market and Jetstar for the low-cost market.

The airline operates an extensive domestic network as well as regional and international services from its main base at Melbourne Airport, using a mixed fleet of Airbus A320 family, Airbus A330 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Like its Qantas parent, Jetstar competes with Virgin Australia and its 60% owned low-cost subsidiary Tigerair Australia. Qantas also has stakes in sister airlines Jetstar Asia Airways, Valuair, Jetstar Pacific Airlines, Jetstar Japan and Jetstar Hong Kong. The advertising slogan of Jetstar is “All day every day low fares”. In 2006, the jingle “Let’s Fly Jetstar tonight” and the use of Szubanski ceased and was replaced with “It’s All About Choice / Fly Away” (later “Low Fares, Good Time”). In July 2008 Jetstar Airways was named the Official Airline of the Australian national rugby league team. One of its A320s was decorated with special decals to advertise the relationship. Jetstar has recently revealed that all its new 787 Dreamliner Aircraft will be fitted with 10-inch seat-back on-demand entertainment screens in business class and 9-inch screens in all economy seats.

Jetstar Airways is the major sponsor of the National Rugby League team, the Gold Coast Titans.
