Australian Airline to Expand in the Philippines


Date Posted: Feb 18, 2011

Jetstar Airways announced transfer of over 400 of its airline jobs in the Philippines and also plans to launch domestic flights in Boracay and Cebu.

The said move of Jetstar will give over 400 airline jobs to the Filipinos and will also help boost tourism in the country.

“The Philippines is a strong Asian market. Traffic is high due to Filipino workers outside the country,” said Jetstar Group chief executive Bruce Buchanan.

Buchanan added, “We are always up for more space in the market place, maybe 5 to 10 percent. We are always looking for opportunities to boot up network presence in the market,” he said. “We are growing in excess of 200 percent in revenues from [flights originating in the Philippines for the last 12 months. A sign of how popular the services are.”

Jetstar said that they are considering flights outside Manila like Cebu and Caticlan, Aklan where millions of local and foreign tourists flocks each year.

“Most are very excited about Caticlan because part of the airport is being upgraded to be of full service in the next few years. Cebu is also quite attractive due to a number of tourist destinations in the area,” Buchanan said. “We are very positive and supportive on government’s deregulation and privatization plans.”
