Jetstar Pacific CEO Mr
“Jetstar Pacific is continuing to positively change and expand air travel in Vietnam and now will bring a fresh approach to flying within Asia,” Mr
“Now making it more affordable for more people to fly within Vietnam, our airline is bringing greater and easier access to exciting international destinations to and from Vietnam.
“Siem Reap and Bangkok are major tourism markets, with existing and projected strong future growth in passenger volumes between these destinations and Vietnam. Both cities represent the logical first stage in Jetstar Pacific’s international growth plans, supported by our future fleet of A320s and the support of its shareholders including the Qantas Group.
“We also expect to take a price leadership position in these international markets from Vietnam to provide even greater choice for travellers. Jetstar is committed to offering the lowest fares on the international markets we fly.”
Customers on Jetstar Pacific’s future international services can also choose to offset their carbon emissions by voluntarily donating to the Jetstar Pacific Carbon Offset Programme, managed by the Vietnam Environmental Protection Fund.
On these international services to Bangkok and Siem Reap, carbon offsets may be purchased by Jetstar Pacific customers for VND30,000 or USD$2 per passenger per flight.
Jetstar Pacific will operate its new international services into the major airports of Suvarnabhumi International in Bangkok and Siem Reap International Airport in Siem Reap, with both daily services operating into the main terminals, similar to other Jetstar branded international flights to these respective cities from Australia and Singapore.
