Jetstar Pacific operates an existing six aircraft fleet including 5 Boeing 737s and 2 Airbus A320 to seven destinations across Vietnam.

The commencement of operations as Jetstar Pacific followed an initial 18 per cent investment in the airline by the Qantas Group in 2007 and the establishment of a Business Services Agreement and Branding Agreement between Pacific Airlines and Jetstar Airways.

The Qantas Group’s plans to further increase its investment to a maximum 30 per cent holding in 2010.
