When Jetstar, the new corporate offshoot of Qantas, commences operations to Asia in November 2006 you can expect that all the seats on its fleet of four Airbus A330-200 jets will be filled with people taking advantage of their amazingly low introductory fares.

In announcing the fares to Asia which start as low as AU$169 for a one way passage from Sydney or Melbourne to Bali, a Jetstar spokesperson proved himself a master of understatement when he said, "We'll have an extremely competitive offering on these routes and destinations."

The fares offered by Jetstar will be pitched at rates that are "up to 30% below" fares currently offered to the same destinations by competitors.

Jetstar - as the low-cost-airline alternative to Qantas, will commence services to Honolulu, Bali, Phuket, Ho Chi Minh City and Osaka flying from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Eventual plans call for a trebling of the Airline's fleet to include 12 aircraft by 2009/2010.

Initial response to the announcement of special fares has exceeded Jetstar's ability to handle the surge in demand. The Airline’s website crashed just days after the launch of the special fare promotion, unable to cope with the sudden influx of web-based customers.

Garuda Welcomes the Competition

Garuda Indonesia has welcomed the introduction of no-frills carrier Jetstar to Bali, seeing it as endorsement of the island’s continuing strength as a tourist destination.

“Garuda Indonesia has always retained a strong confidence in the resilience of the Bali market and we are pleased to see this reinforced by Jetstar's entry. The promotional activity generated can only serve to further hasten the recovery,” said Garuda Indonesia's Regional Manager, South West Pacific, Suranto Yitnopawiro.

Suranto dismissed the commercial threat of lower fares from Jetstar on the market insisting that his Airline’s fare and product "remain competitively strong."

"Garuda Indonesia is a full service airline, offering both Business and Economy class with full meals, drinks and entertainment at no extra charge," said Suranto. Adding, "Garuda Indonesia is able to cater for the needs of all passengers, including the physically handicapped and unaccompanied minors. And we are able to offer children's fares to this popular family destination."

"All in all, Garuda Indonesia is comfortable with its position in the Bali market and we are confident that Jetstar's endorsement of our island destination will only prove beneficial to both Garuda Indonesia and the Balinese," Suranto said.
