QF China Eastern form Jetstar Hong Kong

first_imgQantas CEO, Alan Joyce Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T China Eastern has teamed up with Australian carrier, Qantas to create a new Asia-based budget airline, Jetstar Hong Kong. Serving short haul routes throughout Asia, the partnership will see the development of the Hong Kong based carrier expected to launch into the aviation industry from 2013 with a fleet of 3 Airbus A320s, expanding to 18 aircraft by 2015. Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said the new partnership would be a tremendous opportunity to service the greater china market. “Qantas have a relationship with China Eastern going back 20 years,” Mr Joyce said. “This is the first joint venture that China Eastern has entered with anybody and there are opportunities to build accessibility and expand the Jetstar brand in this growing region.” Jetstar Group chief executive Bruce Buchanan added that the proposition for a low-cost carrier is the right move and consumers can see the fit within the burgeoning Asian marketplace. “This is great for consumers in Hong Kong,” Mr Buchanan said. “Around the world, the profitability for short haul carriers is clearly there. There are advantages for the early movers, as seen in North America and Europe. We think Jetstar is that carrier for the Asian region.” Reassuring the Australian market, the low-cost carrier’s head noted during a media conference that the airline has no intention of moving Jetstar out of Australia. “Like all good Australian companies, we will be creating ventures offshore,” Mr Joyce added. “It’s about developing opportunities in overseas markets and new business in a new jurisdiction.” China Eastern chairman Liu Shaoyong also said he was excited to bring this travel option to the Hong Kong region. “Jetstar Hong Kong’s low fare model will enable people to fly more often for less and will help to stimulate the Hong Kong tourism industry and the broader economy,” he said. Expansion is playing a key role in the developmental success of Jetstar worldwide. “The franchising structure enables benefits and broader coverage in the Chinese market to roll over into our other Asian Jetstar markets and hopefully Australia,” Mr Buchanan noted. “In Asia, culturally and business-wise they’re all very different markets. So it’s a credit to the entire team that we’ve been able to crack this market.” The new lost cost-carrier aims to extend services from 80 cities to in excess of 200.last_img read more
