One airline official, who asked not to be named due to lack of authority to speak to the media, said Jetstar’s rule on credit card payments has been enforced for some time for selected routes, including the Philippines.
So maybe you see those fancy black cards or diamond cards or whatnots on commercials and think those are the best bet.
Jetstar Asia of the Qantas Group was launched in 2004 in the Asia-Pacific.
The Inquirer tried to get a comment about the policy from Jetstar Asia Airways’s Makati City office but officials there referred all queries to the airline’s main office in Singapore.
Selected countries Apparently, this is a policy that applies only to passengers from selected countries, including the Philippines.
This despite the fact that the bookings were made online, after the airline firm’s system had accepted the payments made through these credit cards, and after photocopies of the credit card were presented to the crew for verification.
