Travel Digest - - NEWS | AIR LINES -

Jet­star’s new flights to re­gional des­ti­na­tions in New Zealand from De­cem­ber this year, are ex­pected to cre­ate 100 new jobs for pilots, cabin crew and ground crew. The ser­vices are ex­pected to op­er­ate to at least four re­gional des­ti­na­tions ini­tially, with some of those un­der con­sid­er­a­tion be­ing Hamil­ton, Ro­torua, New Ply­mouth, Napier, Palmer­ston North, Nel­son and In­ver­cargill. Prime Min­is­ter John Key, speak­ing at the re­cent an­nounce­ment in Auck­land, said: “We wel­comed three mil­lion over­seas tourists to the coun­try over the past year. This new ca­pac­ity into the re­gions will al­low in­ter­na­tional tourists to travel around the coun­try more cheaply. It will also al­low more New Zealan­ders to travel around and visit fam­ily and friends.” Jet­star par­ent com­pany Qan­tas chief ex­ec­u­tive Alan Joyce said fares for the new des­ti­na­tions will go on sale in Septem­ber this year.
