Jetstar Asia celebrates 10 years of direct services between Singapore and Darwin with special livery

Jetstar Asia has partnered with Tourism Northern Territory to celebrate ten years of flying between Singapore and Darwin with a special livery on Airbus A320 9V-JSB depicting scenes from the Top-End.

The airline continued:

In celebration of our 10th year of flying to Darwin, we’ve launched a commemorative livery, featuring the top icons of Australia’s Outback, Northern Territory!

Designed by Singaporean illustrator Ben Quek Made By Ben, this special livery is on our 9V-JSB A320, so look out for it as it flies around Asia and of course to Darwin.

“From vast deserts to lush wetlands, koalas to crocodiles – these are the contrasts I wanted to

capture in the design and colours in the livery,” said Mr. Qwek.

Jetstar Asia operates a daily service from Singapore to Darwin during peak periods.

Jetstar Airways celebrates its 100th aircraft with a special livery

Jetstar Airways (Australia) (Melbourne) this month celebrated reaching 100 aircraft, a milestone reflecting the impressive scale of the airline across Asia Pacific.

Since launching in 2004, Jetstar has grown from a small domestic carrier – with just 14 aircraft flying up and down the east coast of Australia – to become the fastest airline brand in Asia Pacific to grow its fleet to 100 aircraft.

Jetstar Group Chief Executive Officer Jayne Hrdlicka said this milestone was only possible because of the 400,000 passengers who choose to fly with the Jetstar Group each week.

To commemorate this milestone, Jetstar has applied a special 100th aircraft livery on its first Sharklet-equipped Airbus A320.

The livery features 132 people doing the Jetstar star jump including passengers and ambassadors from across Asia Pacific representing the five Jetstar branded airlines.

“This aircraft also celebrates the huge achievement of carrying more than 100 million passengers in our nine year history,” Ms Hrdlicka added.

“The delivery of this new A320, with its remarkable wing-tip technology, reflects our on-going commitment to invest in modern aircraft and innovation to benefit our customers.

“The distinctive wing-tips bring about higher fuel efficiencies and help us to continue to deliver everyday low fares to our customers.”

The Jetstar Group now has three aircraft fitted with the fuel saving Sharklets – one each for Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan and now Jetstar Australia and New Zealand.

The Airbus A320-232 with the special 100th livery registration of VH-VFN (msn 5566) will be flown on major domestic routes and over the coming months and is expected to visit New Zealand, Singapore and Japan.

The Jetstar Group is made up of Jetstar Airways (subsidiary of the QANTAS Group) in Australia and New Zealand, Jetstar Asia in Singapore, Jetstar Pacific in Vietnam and Jetstar Japan in Japan.

Subject to regulatory approval, Jetstar Hong Kong will fly to destinations in Greater China, Japan, South Korea and South East Asia later this year.
