Jetstar – “Business as usual” during Qantas grounding

written by | October 30, 2011

Qantas group discount carrier Jetstar has said it is business as usual for the airline, and that it will offer dicounted fares to stranded Qantas passengers.

Jetstar said it would offer an additional Sydney to Melbourne service today (October 30) and that more opportunities for additional services are being explored. 

Although “capacity remains very limited” and that all of its flights remain unaffected by the Qantas mainline grounding, it is offering unsold seats on its flights to Qantas passengers. These seats are for sale only at the airports to passengers with valid Qantas itineraries.
