Qantas said today any suggestion it was contemplating cutting its investment in Jetstar Asia were wrong.
Qantas Chief Financial Officer and Chairman of Jetstar Asia, Mr Peter Gregg, said Qantas remained fully committed to its investment in the airline.
“Jetstar Asia is, and will continue to be, an important part of the Qantas Group’s diversification strategy,” Mr Gregg said. “It is ridiculous to equate a number of operational cancellations – which are in the process of being resolved – and a claim about pilot shortages with concerns over the airline’s future, as some media reports today have done.
“Unfortunately for its competitors, Jetstar Asia will continue to operate across its existing network and Qantas remains fully committed to the airline.”
