Australia - Aasia halpalentoja lisää
« : 27.07.2006, 11:08:40 »
Aussi - Aasia välin lennot näyttää halpenevan huomattavasti ja Tiger Airwaysin lisäksi nyt JetStar tarjoaa lentoja eri kohteisiin Aasiaan Ausseista. Tulevaisuudessa olsis sitten mahdollista päästä lentäen Euroopasta Ausseihin todella halvalla, kun Oasis Airkin avannee reittinsä Hong Kongista Lontooseen hintaan $170AUD ... tuskin nuo Jetstaritkaan kovin kalliita on (sivut jumissa, ilmeisesti liikaa kävijöitä). Pitää vaan välissä ottaa lento Hong Kongiin. Lehdessä oli että Sydney-Bali meno-paluu olisi alk. 550$+surcharges ja vastaavasti Sydney-Osaka meno-paluu $700+surcharges. Katsotaan onko hinnat oikeasti halvat, kun sivuille pääsee...

Demand for cheap flights jams Jetstar website
Steve Creedy, Aviation writer
July 27, 2006
JETSTAR'S website and phone lines seized up yesterday as travellers rushed to take advantage of new promotional international fares starting at $169 one-way to Bali.

The airline reported its biggest hourly response, eclipsing even its 2004 launch when 97,000 fares were sold in a day.

And travel agents reported problems booking Jetstar domestic tickets because of the avalanche of bargain-hunters.

Jetstar spokesman Simon Westaway said the website at one point recorded 300 page impressions a second, and the airline doubled the number of computer servers to cope with the traffic.

It also simplified its website in an attempt to help the bookings go through.

"It's unprecedented interest, and we always thought there was pent-up demand for value fares," Mr Westaway said. "These are obviously extremely good value for money ... and clearly the public is pretty enthusiastic."

The promotional fares, which also feature $199 one-way specials from Sydney to Phuket and $249 for Sydney-Osaka, include taxes and charges.

They are good for travel between the international airline's planned November 23 start date and June 30 next year, with services to six destinations phased in between November and March.

Jetstar has yet to set prices for flights to Honolulu as it tries to get US permission to fly five services a week, which is opposed by United Airlines.

The regular one-way fares will range from $409 for Melbourne to Bali and $489 for Sydney-Ho Chi Minh City and $549 for Osaka-Sydney.

But economy passengers will find a sting in the tail as Jetstar tries to keep its costs 40-50 per cent below those of Qantas's international operations.

Those in "cattle class" will need to bring their own food, pillows and entertainment, or buy it from the airline.

They will be able to pre-purchase packages before they leave, as well as pay for excess baggage above the airline's limit of 20kg for checked luggage and 7kg for cabin baggage.

"Feed Me" packages costing $25 will include two meals and two non-alcoholic drinks on longer routes, and $15for a one-meal deal on shorter flights such as Bali.

A portable video unit will cost $10 and "Comfort Me" packages with a blanket, pillow and amenity kit cost $7.

Passengers will not be able to bring on board alcoholic or hot drinks, which will be available for sale.

Jetstar chief executive Alan Joyce said the airline aimed to give people a choice between paying for a low fare or selecting the service they required.

"That allows people to decide what they want before they travel, and have the option when they're on the aircraft of also being able to purchase different components of the service," he said.
