It has grown from just 14 aircraft as a small domestic carrier in Australia to what it is today in the Asia-Pacific region. There are some 400,000 passengers who fly with the group weekly. The group is made up of Jetstar Airways ( a subsidiary of the Qantas Group ) in Australia and New Zealand, Jetstar Asia in Singapore, Jetstar Pacific in Vietnam and Jetstar Japan. Jeststar Hong Kong is still awaiting regulatory approval and will fly to destinations in Greater China, Japan, South Korea and South East Asia later this year.
Jetstar has applied a special 100th aircraft livery on its newest sharklet-equipped A320 (VH-VFN) featuring 132 people doing the Jetstar star jump including passengers and ambassadors from across the Asia Pacific region representing the five Jetstar branded airlines.
