Good news for the island today as Jetstar announce a Phuket to Melbourne route, using their Boeing 747 Dreamliner, due to commence on 9 February. Australians visitors to Phuket are already some of the highest, so this will no doubt tourism-based businesses across the island.
The CEO of Jestar Australia and New Zealand, David Hall said, “We’re delighted to be offering this game changing aircraft on services to some of our most popular long haul leisure destinations. Our crew are telling us customers are really impressed by the onboard experience with many commenting on the larger windows and spacious feel in the cabin. It’s a testament to the hard work and professionalism of our team that we’ve been able to launch four new 787 routes in the first 50 days of international operations.”
From 9 February, Jetstar’s 787 will be covering the route one time per week. From 30 March onwards, the flight will run three times per week.
