Jetstar Asia Airways
Jetstar Asia Airways Private Limited (Chinese: 捷星亚洲航空公司) is the Asian offshoot of Qantas Airways, and the third Low-cost carrier to be launched in Singapore. Qantas owns 49.9% of the airline, with the other stakes held by the Singapore government's Temasek Holdings (Private) Limited (19%) and two prominent Singaporean businessmen, Tony Chew (22%) and FF Wong (10%). It received its air operator's certificate from the Singapore government on 19 November 2004
Like its Singapore competitiors Valuair and Tiger Airways, the airline flies brand new Airbus A320s with charcoal-grey leather seating. While food and beverage need to be paid on board, there is assigned seating and a 20kg baggage allowance for all passengers, matching the perks offered by Valuair.
Due to its belated entry into the market, the airline intends to differentiate itself from its competitors by flying further anywhere within a 5-hour radius from Singapore. On 25 November 2004, the airline annouced seven routes to Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, Pattaya, Jakarta, Surabaya and Manila, the most ambitious startup plan compared to any of its Asian rivals, and will already give it the widest international coverage.
Online ticketing commenced at 0800 hours (8GMT) on December 7 2004, a day after the first three routings and their promotional prices were announced, namely S$48 (HK$228) to Hong Kong, S$88 (NT1788) to Taipei and S$28 (Bht725) to Pattaya on a one-way ticket for all seats in the first week of operations as each routing is launched.
