News On Japan via The Australian -- Jan 24
Jetstar Japan will be more than a third of the way towards its target fleet of 24 aircraft next month when it adds two Airbus A320 aircraft so it can begin flying to three new destinations later in the year.
The Japanese joint venture will add Oita, Nagoya and Kagoshima to its network as it boosts its fleet of 180-seat A320s to nine aircraft.
The move adds up to 25,000 seats a week. The airline has carried more than 600,000 passengers across its existing network since launching last July.
