Jetstar boosts international flights out of Melbourne

Jetstar has unveiled plans to add more international flights from Melbourne.

The budget airlines says it will be ramping up the frequency of flights to Singapore, Bangkok, Phuket, Auckland and Christchurch, adding a total of more than 100,000 new seats.

Starting from April 1, 2024, Jetstar will increase services to New Zealand in peak periods, using its Airbus A320 fleet.

The airline will fly Melbourne to Auckland with up to 13 return flights per week and Melbourne to Christchurch: up to five return flights per week.

From June 17, 2024, the airline will fly its Boeing 787-8 aircraft more often to major south-east Asian cities including Singapore, Bangkok and Phuket.

The announcement came just days before Jetstar launches new direct flights between Melbourne and Nadi (Fiji) from Saturday.

The three days per week service will carry up to 72,000 customers a year.

Jetstar Group CEO, Stephanie Tully said Jetstar has seen particularly strong demand for international travel out of Melbourne.

“Melburnians love to travel and we’re continuing to see strong demand," she said.
