Jetstar has brought additional capacity to its Brisbane – Auckland services with the introduction of Airbus A321neo’s to the route.

It’s the first time NEOs will be operated by the airline on a Tasman route, adding more than 80,000 seats to the service every year.

The extra capacity is due to the NEO having 46 more seats than Jetstar’s existing A320 aircraft which have been flying between Brisbane and Auckland.

Jetstar currently operates a daily return service between Auckland and Brisbane but is set to increase capacity to up to 11 return services per week from April, in response to strong demand.

Jetstar has just welcomed its 11th state-of-the art NEO, with a further 7 NEO LR aircraft set to join its fleet by the end of the year.

NEOs are up to 50 per cent quieter than similar size Airbus A320/A321s and burn up to 20 percent less fuel.

They also have an extra fuel tank to fly further (about 3,500 nautical miles / 6,482 kilometers)

NEOs have 46 more seats compared to the Airbus A320, all of which are wider and have USB power and seat back device holders as well as extra-large overhead storage bins with 40 per cent more space.

The entire fleet has also recently been fitted with new wireless In-flight Entertainment, so customers can download the Jetstar Entertainment App on their device and enjoy a range of content from as little as $5.
