Jetstar announced that it will add five new Airbus A320 and two Airbus A330 aircraft to support expansion of its Singapore operations.

By the end of 2011, Jetstar Asia will have 17 Airbus A320-200s and four A330-200s based at  Singapore.

Jetstar will  increase services capacity between Australia and Singapore,  Singapore-Taipei, Singapore-Kuala Lumpur, Singapore-Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore-Hong Kong, Singapore-Bali and Singapore-Jakarta routes. It will also start services between Singapore-Ningbo and a daily Melbourne-Singapore-Beijing service.

JetStar aims to hold a 20% share of the Asia Pacific low-cost market by 2020 and may need up to 400 aircraft to achieve this.

The airline also stated that its Boeing 787 Dreamliners are still on schedule, with the first aircraft to enter service by the end of 2012.
