Jetstar Pacific, Vietnam's first low-cost airline, launched commercial operations as part of Qantas Group Friday. It has become the first Vietnamese carrier to offer online booking to domestic customers. Qantas holds 18% of the LCC and will increase its investment to 30% in 2010 (ATWOnline, April 15). Jetstar Pacific has four 737s and will add a fifth next month, but it eventually will fly up to 30 A320s.
