The first of five Jetstar Q300 turboprops to don the Jetstar livery has been rolled out of the paint shop in Townsville in preparation for regional services in New Zealand later this year.
The aircraft were formerly used by QantasLink and will be the first turboprops to fly under the Jetstar brand. The Q300s are also being given an interior refresh to match the Jetstar onboard product.
Further details of the new services, including the four regional destinations to which they will fly in New Zealand, will be announced in the coming weeks.
Regional New Zealand flights on the Q300s will be operated by Eastern Australia Airlines for Jetstar Airways.
