Jetstar Reduces Every Day Low Fares with JetSaver Light


KUALA LUMPUR, May 7/Medianet International-AsiaNet/ --


Beginning 7 May 2008, Qantas Group value based airline Jetstar Airways ("Jetstar") will launch

JetSaver Light, an innovative new air fare product, on its international flights between Australia and

Malaysia. 


With JetSaver Light, each economy class passenger travelling on the Kuala Lumpur-Sydney route

can save RM60 per one way flight by opting to have carry-on luggage only of up to 10 kilogrammes

in a standard size bag. 


The new product fare will be available on Jetstar.com, Jetstar Telephone Reservations (+ 1800 81

3090) and through travel agents listed on the carrier's trade websites.


According to Jetstar Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce, "Jetstar's commitment to every day low

fares is further underpinned by this new pricing initiative. The new fare product offers the choice of

even lower fares and is an incentive to encourage customers to take a short leisure break or

business trips on our fast expanding network."


"As our airline achieves real cost savings through this decision, we believe a lower air fare should

be passed back as the trade-off. By offering more choices to customers and allowing them to pay

for the services they value when flying Jetstar, greater demand for travel on our network will be

stimulated."


JetSaver Light was introduced to Australia and New Zealand customers in February 2008 and is

currently offered throughout Australia's domestic, trans-Tasman routes and most Jetstar

international routes apart from Honolulu and Japan. 


The airline's popular JetSaver fare product will still be available and will continue to allow up to 20

kilogrammes of free checked-in baggage allowance per paying passenger on domestic and

international services.


Supporting its continued commitment of offering more choices and every day low fares, Jetstar

recently increased the maximum carry-on luggage weight from 7 kilogrammes to 10 kilogrammes

per person for a standard size bag to meet enhanced cabin baggage weight restrictions. 


Existing customers with current JetSaver fare bookings may not exchange their current booking for

a JetSaver Light fare. 


Jetstar currently flies three times a week between Kuala Lumpur and Sydney.
