History of Jetstar
Jetstar was established in 2003 by Qantas as a low cost airline. Flights began operating in May of 2004. The first international flights were added to the network in 2005 to Christchurch in New Zealand. Jetstar was the first airline in Australia to allow passengers to choose seats upon booking. This service was introduced in 2006. By 2009 Jetstar added direct serviced to Auckland from Sydney and the Gold Coast. This same year Jetstar began operating domestic flights in New Zealand, offering low fares to previously expensive routes. These new connections include flights between Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.
