Jetstar Asia Airways Pte Ltd (operating as Jetstar Asia) (simplified Chinese: 捷星亚洲; traditional Chinese: 捷星亞洲; pinyin: Jiéxīng Yàzhōu) is a low-cost airline based in Singapore. It is one of the Asian offshoots of parent Jetstar Airways, the low-cost subsidiary airline of Australia's Qantas airline. It operates services to regional destinations in Southeast Asia to countries such as Burma, Cambodia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. It also flies to regional routes in East Asia such as Japan, Taiwan and China including special regions like Hong Kong and Macau. It is the main feeder airline for its parent company Jetstar Airways for budget passengers flying to Australia. Its sister airlines include Jetstar in New Zealand, Jetstar Pacific and Jetstar Japan.
The ownership structure is composed of Westbrook Investments (51%) and Qantas Group (49%). Newstar Holdings is the holding company that operates and manages Jetstar in Singapore.
Jetstar Asia and Valuair have formed a code share partnership with parent Qantas, effectively making them the regional feeder lines for the Australian carrier, similar to the role SilkAir plays for Singapore Airlines.
With the code share arrangement Jetstar Asia/Valuair will effectively and seamlessly connect Qantas' customers, through their common Singapore Changi Airport hub, to their extensive and growing Asia Pacific network.
