Since 2004, we've expanded from five aircraft operating along the east coast of Australia to almost 90 aircraft flying to around 60 destinations in 16 countries. Our mission is the same now as when we started — to help more people to travel more often for less. From that first flight in 2004 from Avalon Airport on Melbourne's outskirts, we've welcomed about 85 million passengers onto a Jetstar flight somewhere in the world. We've had the pleasure of taking many of them on a holiday, or an overseas trip or to visit friends and family. It's fantastic to have been part of so many people's journeys. And I'm extremely grateful for the support of our customers and Jetstar team members over the past eight years, who have helped make Jetstar's own journey possible. We know that lower fares mean people can take trips they otherwise wouldn't or couldn't take.

Today, we offer that fare for less than AU$80. From fairly humble beginnings in Australia eight years ago, we've been able to take our low fares model to the rest of the world — with Jetstar-branded airlines in Singapore, New Zealand and Vietnam. Soon we'll add Jetstar Japan* and Jetstar Hong Kong* to that list. We look forward to helping millions more people on their journey in the years ahead. Thanks for choosing Jetstar.
