Jetstar announced yesterday it will expand its trans Tasman operations with new direct A320 services from Melbourne and Cairns to Auckland. The new flights will add an extra 92,000 seats between Australia and New Zealand each year, growing Jetstar’s trans Tasman capacity by over 20 per cent.Tourism to Melbourne, Cairns and Auckland will benefit from the added flights, Jetstar chief executive Bruce Buchanan said.“We can certainly see the possibilities for growing inbound and outbound travel demand between Auckland, Queenstown and Melbourne, and similarly we see opportunities to grow traffic between Auckland, Cairns and Asia,” Auckland Airport’s chief executive Simon Moutter said.center_img Source = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A Jetstar is also set to increase its flights from Auckland to Wellington, growing its total New Zealand domestic operations to 84 weekly return flights by the end of the year.last_img
