A third Boeing 787-8 entered service with Jetstar in late January, allowing the airline to announce services between Melbourne and Phuket will be operated by the Dreamliner from February 9.

The new aircraft – VH-VKD – joins -VKA and -VKB in the Jetstar fleet, allowing the airline to gradually introduce the new aircraft onto its international routes as its experience with the type accelerates.

“We’re delighted to be offering this game changing aircraft on services to some of our most popular long haul leisure destinations,” Jetstar Australia and New Zealand CEO David Hall said in a statement. “Our crew are telling us customers are really impressed by the on-board experience with many commenting on the larger windows and spacious feel in the cabin.”
