Vietnam: Jetstar to add flights despite woes
Jetstar's troubles in Vietnam have not held back its expansion plans of flights to the country, reported Australian daily the Age.
While the carrier's Vietnam joint venture, Jetstar Pacific, faces a Vietnamese government investigation into fuel hedging losses, including maintaining a ban on two Australian senior managers from leaving the country, the no-frills airline has announced it is almost doubling the number of flights between Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore.
Its service will increase from eight to 13 flights a week by May, and to two flights daily, by July.
The increase in services is part of a Jetstar fleet expansion from Singapore, that will see two more Airbus A320s added to fleet, taking the total to 10, by the middle of the year.
The service expansion will be by Jetstar Asia, a 49 percent owned Singapore-based subsidiary of Qantas.
