Qantas Freight’s 130 partners.Under the partnership, Qantas Freight will manage Jetstar Asia’s freight capacity across 23

it operates a fleet of 18 Airbus A320 aircraft, each carrying up to two and a half tonnes of cargo
per flight.

Qantas carries freight on more than 130 passenger flights per week to ten cities in Asia
(excluding Japan), in addition to freighters to Bangkok, Chongqing, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

OMMENTS
Jetstar Asia CEO, Mr Barathan Pasupathi:
“With more than 600 departures a week from Changi Airport, Jetstar Asia’s freight customers
can look forward to outstanding service with the new Qantas Freight partnership.

“With a reliable schedule of services to 23 ports from Singapore, the new partnership will
ensure our customers enjoy wider connectivity and more direct access through our integrated
Qantas Group network of more than 110 markets in Australia, Asia, Europe and the US.

“As the only low fares airline operating services from Singapore to numerous Asia-Pacific
destinations like Okinawa, Darwin, Medan and Siem Reap, Qantas freight customers will also
benefit from direct access to fresh markets previously unavailable to them.”

“We are excited to partner with Jetstar Asia and build on our strong relationship. Qantas
Freight’s extensive network into, out of, and around Australia, Europe and the US, combined
