Qantas confident of Jetstar Hong Kong launch

    Qantas is counting on the negotiating skills of Pansy Ho, the daughter of casino magnate Stanley Ho, to gain approval for its JetStar Hong Kong low-cost service, according to local media. Qantas CEO Alan Joyce expressed confidence the airline would win approval after Ho took over leading negotiations with regulators. The application for a license to operate in Hong Kong was gazetted in August.
