Earthquake in Christchurch and Jetstar Services

MELBOURNE, Feb. 22 /Medianet International-AsiaNet/ --

A significant earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale has occurred in Christchurch late this morning.

Christchurch International Airport is presently closed.

Jetstar wishes to advise that a result of this event, our domestic and trans-Tasman international services to and from Christchurch have been suspended for the remainder of today (Tuesday 22 February) until further notice.

Jetstar New Zealand services this afternoon to/from Auckland, Wellington and Queenstown are also presently affected and will not operate until further notice due to air traffic control.

The safety of our passengers and our people is Jetstar's number one priority at this time.

Jetstar is working closely with New Zealand airport authorities regarding the status of safe flying operations for Christchurch and our remaining New Zealand airports.

Jetstar will soon issue a customer advisory offering flexible fare arrangements for travel.
