Jetstar Japan targets business fliers with flexible fares

Delays, lack of choice still pose problems for low-cost carrier

Jetstar hopes its Flexibiz add-on will attract budget-conscious business travelers.

TOKYO -- Budget airline Jetstar Japan on Wednesday launched a new fare option to make flying more convenient for business travelers, aiming to broaden its customer base.

The so-called Flexibiz bundle costs an additional 2,000 yen ($17.84) each way for domestic flights and 3,000 yen for international flights. Customers who buy the add-on can switch to a different flight on the same day in case of sudden changes to travel plans. A passenger looking to fly on a different date can cancel the reservation and receive a voucher worth the price of the original ticket.
