- Jetstar celebrates partnership with the very first season of Asia’s Got Talent
- Jetstar supports aspiring talent by connecting them to their dreams and sharing it with their loved ones
- Asia’s Got Talent branded livery on a Jetstar aircraft will take to the skies in February
Jetstar is pleased to announce sponsorship of the very first season of the wildly popular talent competition — Asia’s Got Talent.
The first pan-regional format of the talent search programme will see some of the region’s most aspiring artistes gather in Singapore to fight for the coveted winning title.
Jetstar’s network of 22 destinations across 13 countries in Asia Pacific will enable the region’s top talents to fly further to fulfill their dreams and aspirations.
“The talent show has proven to be very popular around the world and we are proud and excited to be the official airline for the first ever Asian edition,” said Barathan Pasupathi, CEO of Jetstar Asia.
“It is indeed a treat to be able to bring the best of Asia’s talent together for the regional auditions and live performances in Singapore, following open auditions in Taipei, Jakarta and Manila — all major cities we fly to. Our low fares also make it more accessible for the participants’ families and friends to take off and support them,” added Mr. Pasupathi.
To support these artistes in their pursuit of being Asia’s top talent, Jetstar will provide complimentary return airfares to those who are shortlisted from across Asia for the judges’ auditions up until the grand finale, which will be held in Singapore.
Each contestant may also invite a companion to support them in reaching for the stars.
“Asia’s Got Talent is the widest reaching version of the already world record breaking Got Talent format. We’re proud to partner with Jetstar to bring these phenomenal performances to all of Asia, thereby bringing even more countries into the Got Talent family,” said Paul O’Hanlon, managing director of FremantleMedia Asia.
To celebrate the season premiere of Asia’s Got Talent, a Jetstar A320 will now sport a brand new look.
“The livery is a first in Got Talent history, and it is the perfect embodiment of Asia’s Got Talent’s goal of finding the best talents from across the continent and bringing them together in the world’s largest, widest reaching talent competition,” added Mr. O’Hanlon.
The aircraft will take to the skies from February and will fly around the region to destinations in the Jetstar network for the next six months.
