Jetstar has celebrated some milestones in regards to reliability at the Australian carrier.

More than 80% of their domestic flights arrived on time, and 78.3% departed on schedule last month.

The cancellation rate dropped to 1.5% on over 7,200 flights operated, serving more than 20 destinations.

On outperforming their domestic competitors, Jetstar said the following:

“It’s the fifth consecutive month that Jetstar has outperformed its main domestic rival for on time arrivals and lowest cancellations.”

“Its competitor recorded an on-time arrival rate of 75.4 per cent with 2.8 per cent of flights cancelled during the month.”

“The strong result follows improvements right across the airline from hiring more than 1000 new team members, bringing forward check-in and bag drop times, and appointing dedicated on time performance managers at key ports.”

“The airline’s twelfth new Airbus A321neo LR aircraft is set to arrive next month as part of a major investment in new more reliable, fuel efficient and quieter aircraft as Jetstar continues to expand its network across Australia and Asia-Pacific.”

“So far in April, Jetstar’s strong performance has continued despite some operational challenges including disruptions caused by storms in Sydney early in the month.”

Adding to the statement was Jetstar’s Chief Operating Officer, Matt Franzi:

“While these are strong results, we remain focused on further improving our operations and delivering a safe and reliable service for our customers every time they fly with us. 

“We’ve been working incredibly hard in recent months to better prepare for when things don’t go to plan, and it shows in these latest performance figures.  

“Bad weather, air traffic control restrictions and unexpected aircraft maintenance can all cause problems with getting flights away on time, so the job is never done for our teams.”

In conclusion, Jetstar is entering a new era of improved reliability and service.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how the airline can take this further throughout the year.

Reliability is an important factor in ensuring return business, and to fill seats on the routes they serve.

But for now, let’s see how things go for the airline throughout 2024.
