Japanese budget airline Jetstar has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320 when they picked it up at Airbus’ final-assembly line in Toulouse, France on Tuesday.
Jetstar will start regional services between Narita Airport (Tokyo) and Sapporo, Okinawa and other Japanese cities. They plan to expand the fleet to 24 aircraft in three years.
“We are extremely happy to take delivery of our brand new Airbus A320. With its wider seats and more spacious cabin than the competition, we are positioned to provide better value that our customers will appreciate as well as fast turnarounds, which is key to our business model,” said Miyuki Suzuki, president of Jetstar Japan. “We aim to become the number one LCC in the Japanese market, and the A320 will help us achieve our goals.”
