By adding a ninth aircraft to their New Zealand based fleet, Jetstar is increasing the number of domestic and trans-Tasman flights it offers.
Adding an additional 20 return weekly flights between Auckland - Wellington, seven weekly return flights between Auckland - Christchurch and Wellington - Christchurch means an extra 600,000 seats available each year.
For those Aussie travellers planning on trips to New Zealand's alpine wonderland, there will be four more direct flights from Melbourne to Queenstown and three from Sydney to Queenstown.
With the increased frequency comes new jobs as well, which is a nice tick for the economy.
