Telstra has signed a three-year multimillion-dollar deal with Jetstar to provide managed communications services to the budget airliner across the Asia-Pacific region.

The exact value of the deal was not disclosed, but Telstra said it was the largest global contract for the company to date, and the first significant Network Applications and Services contract for the company in Asia. It builds on previous agreements that Telstra has had with Jetstar since 2006.

Telstra will have a team set aside to be directly responsible for Jetstar's IT operations across the Asia-Pacific region, including voice, mobile, and data services and the management of Jetstar's wide area network and global datacentre services.

Jetstar's chief information officer Steve Tame said that Telstra's dedicated team would work alongside Jetstar's IT department.

"This puts us in a strong position to tailor our network for future demand," he said in a statement.
