Jetstar Celebrates 5 Years of New Zealand Domestic Flights

• Over seven million customers flown since 2009 launch

• Over one million domestic seats sold for under $50

• Celebrations throughout the week across Jetstar domestic destinations

Jetstar marks a major milestone in New Zealand this week as it celebrates five years of low domestic fares for Kiwi travellers.

Jetstar’s first domestic flight from Auckland to Wellington took off on 10 June 2009. The airline has since clocked up over 45,000 flights across its five domestic destinations of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown, carrying well over seven million passengers.

Grant Kerr, Head of Jetstar in New Zealand, said the fifth domestic birthday comes at a time when the airline is flying high for on-time performance and customer satisfaction.

“In 2013 we were New Zealand’s most punctual domestic airline and that’s continued into 2014, with Jetstar recording the most on-time domestic flights in three out of the first four months of the year.*

“Customer satisfaction also continues to improve as we remain focused on the key areas of safety, reliability, customer service and consistently offering the lowest fares.”

Mr Kerr said having reached the five-year domestic milestone Jetstar was now looking forward to the next five years and beyond.

“We love offering Kiwis an affordable and reliable domestic choice when they fly and thanks to their continued support we’re well established as the country’s low-fares leader and committed to New Zealand for the long haul.”

Jetstar will be celebrating with customers and team members at airports, in-flight, online and on the street with a week-long birthday breakfast television promotion visiting all five domestic destinations.

“We’ve organised some birthday surprises for customers travelling with us this week on domestic flights and we’ll be having giveaways as part of the television promotion,” Mr Kerr said. “It’s our way of saying thank you to all our Kiwi customers.”
