Jetstar Asia (3K) has unveiled an exciting new route, offering seasonal direct flights between Singapore and Broome, Western Australia.

This move makes Jetstar Asia the sole carrier offering a direct connection between Singapore, also known as the Lion City, and the world-renowned Kimberley region.

Taking Flight: Broome in June

Buckle up for takeoff on June 25th, 2024! The Singaporean low-cost carrier will operate two return flights per week throughout Broome’s dry season.

This direct access unlocks the Kimberley’s unparalleled beauty – pristine waters, stunning beaches, incredible wildlife, and a tropical climate – making it a dream destination for travellers.

From the iconic Cable Beach to the rugged Kimberley wilderness, Broome offers a world of experiences. Cultural tours and culinary delights ensure every traveller has a memorable visit.

Jetstar’s budget-friendly fares present a fantastic opportunity for travellers from Australia’s North West.

They can enjoy a direct link to Singapore, a multicultural hub famous for its landmarks, food, and shopping.

This route also provides seamless connections to Jetstar’s extensive network out of Changi International Airport, including Bangkok, Bali, and Okinawa.

20th Anniversary Approaches

As the airline prepares for its 20th anniversary later this year, Jetstar Asia CEO John Simeone is thrilled to announce Broome’s addition to their network.

“Just a short flight away from Singapore, Broome is an amazing destination for an unforgettable holiday,” Mr. Simeone said.

“This new route, combined with our low fares, showcases our commitment to providing a diverse range of destinations and incredible travel experiences.”

“I want to thank the Western Australian Government and Broome International Airport for their ongoing support and collaboration in making this happen.”

Boosting Western Australian Tourism

Western Australian Deputy Premier and Tourism Minister, Rita Saffioti, hailed today’s announcement as a significant step forward for WA’s aviation industry.

“We’re excited to provide international visitors with direct access to the stunning Kimberley region,” said Ms. Saffioti.

“This Singapore to Broome service offers a chance to significantly boost international visitor numbers in Australia’s North West. It will inject millions into the region’s tourism businesses.”

The new route creates a new international entry point for Western Australia, offering more itinerary options for overseas visitors.

Passengers can leverage Singapore’s Changi Airport as a major global hub to explore the wonders of Western Australia.

Airports Welcome New Connection

Craig Shaw, CEO of Broome International Airport, praised Jetstar Asia’s commitment to the service. “International connections have been a long-held dream for the local tourism industry and the airport,” Mr. Shaw said.

“We’re thrilled that Jetstar Asia recognizes Broome’s potential as a visitor destination. This connectivity brings Broome closer to the world. It offers fantastic travel options for residents of the North West who can now fly directly to Singapore and beyond.”

Changi Airport Group’s Executive Vice President for Air Hub & Cargo Development, Mr. Lim Ching Kiat, expressed his delight at Changi Airport becoming the first international airport link for Broome.

“We congratulate Jetstar Asia on this new service, making Singapore the first international point out of Broome,” Mr. Lim said.

“The addition of Broome expands Changi’s connectivity to eight cities in Australia. It solidifies our position as the most connected international gateway to Australia.”

“With Perth to Singapore services also launching later this year, travellers will have even more options for travel between Western Australia and Singapore, along with seamless connections to other regional destinations.”
