SINGAPORE - The Jetstar Group has been named the best low-cost carrier in the Asia Pacific following a survey of all international airlines across the globe.
AirlineRatings.com awarded Jetstar the nomination in recognition of the airline's successful decade of growth as well as for its commitment to innovation and safety.
Jetstar Group CEO Jayne Hrdlicka said the carrier's success was the result of the hard work, determination and passion of more than 7,000 team members who support the airline's operations across the Asia Pacific region.
"This award comes as we approach our 10th anniversary of flying," Ms Hrdlicka said.
In the 2013 financial year, the Jetstar Group carried more than 23 million passengers and grew the number of aircraft in the fleet to 117.
"We are very proud to be recognised as the best low fares carrier in the region and this award demonstrates Jetstar's commitment to deliver great value to its customers with the best low fares travel experience available," Ms Hrdlicka said.
