Welcome to Taranaki Jetstar!

New Plymouth airport welcomed Jetstar last week, opening a brand new temporary terminal building.

Offering a number of flights to and from Auckland throughout each day, Jetstar aims to bring more competitive flight pricing to the region – and a lot more visitors too.
Jetstar’s first flight was met with a powhiri by the Tuta Kai’ika Kapahaka group, a blessing by Reverend Albie Martin and speeches by the airline’s Australia and NZ Chief Executive Officer David Hall, Jetstar’s Head of NZ, Grant Kerr and Mayor of New Plymouth Andrew Judd. It was a great day for all and a fantastic growth opportunity for Taranaki’s visitor industry. Plus, check out the cake!

Reminder to all those flying with Jetstar - check in times are 40 minutes before departure. Please ensure you turn up on time to avoid disappointment.
