Qantas Airways' new low-fare subsidiary Jetstar will launch services next week from Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney to 10 eastern Australian destinations, using 14 125-seat Boeing 717s transferred from QantasLink. The airline, which will rival Virgin Blue, will receive the first of 23 177-seat Airbus A320s in July. The A320s will have replaced all the 717s by mid-2006.
