Brief History of Jetstar Airlines:
The airline was established by Qantas in 2003 as a low-cost domestic subsidiary. Qantas acquired Impulse Airlines and relaunched the airline under the Jetstar brand.
Domestic passenger services began on 25 May 2004, after it commenced selling tickets in February 2004. International services to Christchurch, New Zealand, commenced on 1 December 2005. Although owned by Qantas, its management operates largely independently of Qantas.
Despite its low-cost ethos, Jetstar currently offers a limited number of connecting services without through baggage checking - though this has changed since International flights commenced in November 2006 when baggage connectivity and connecting services were added as a service offering for Domestic flights connecting with International flights only.
Reserved seating is currently provided on all routes and from 4 October 2006 Jetstar became the first Australian airline to allow customers to select their seat when booking.
On 13 December 2004, the first flight of sister airline Jetstar Asia Airways took off from its Singapore hub to Hong Kong, marking Qantas' entry into the Asian low-cost market, and its intentions in battling key competitor Singapore Airlines at its home ground. Note that Qantas has only a 49% stake in Jetstar Asia's ownership
On December 1, 2005, Jetstar commenced operations from 4 Australian cities Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast to Christchurch in New Zealand. On December 7, 2005 it was announced that Jetstar would establish the world's first global low cost airline flying initially to destinations within 10 hours of Australia but later to operate to Europe and the Americas.
At the end of 2005, it was announced that Jetstar would fly to Perth, Western Australia, from Geelong's Avalon Airport.
In July 2006, Jetstar and Jetstar Asia were brought together under the Jetstar brand. Jetstar, Jetstar Asia Airways and Valuair customers now make all online bookings through
In April 2007, Qantas also announced a 30% stake in Pacific Airlines which will be re branded Jetstar in 2008 and create a second Asian hub out of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
