Low-cost carrier Jetstar has opened its first Travel Shop in Jakarta.
Located in the Kelapa Gading district of the Indonesian capital, the shop will sell Jetstar’s flights plus other products including hotels and travel insurance. It will also enable cash payments.
“Understanding our customer’s preference for cash payments and the low levels of credit card ownership in Indonesia, we have created our very first retail outlet to make flying with us even easier,” said Jetstar Asia’s CEO, Barathan Pasupathi. “The investment in this new Travel Shop, the first retail outlet for the Jetstar Group, reflects the importance of Indonesia to the Jetstar network.
“The Jetstar Travel Shop will help us to grow our customer base in Indonesia and will support Jetstar as we explore future growth in this market,” he added.
Jetstar will also start accepting payments in Indonesian rupiah from 16 October, in addition to existing US dollar payments.
