“AKA Asia impressed us with its imaginative and resourceful approach to communications,” said Liz McCarthy, head of marketing and public relations for Jetstar Asia. “We are confident that they will help us to continue to build strong brand affinity with the general public.”

Amy Wright, AKA Asia director and partner, said the agency will focus on consumer engagement and put its creative recommendations into place over the coming year.

It operates services to regional destinations in Southeast Asia, Australia, China and Japan from its main base at Singapore Changi Airport.
