LONDON – This month Jetstar Asia will increase the number of services it operates to Bangkok and Manila. With rising demand, this will provide travellers with even more options when visiting two of Southeast Asia’s most popular metropolitan cities. 

An increase in weekend services

Singapore – Manila

With demand for services to Manila steadily increasing, Jetstar Asia have added two more services on Sunday and Monday from 1 August to meet passenger requirements. The carrier will now operate a total of 13 services a week to the Philippines’ capital, with one-way low fares offered from just SGD$138. 

Singapore – Bangkok

From Saturday 6 August, Jetstar Asia will operate an additional Saturday morning service between Singapore and Bangkok. This effectively increasing its route services to eight return flights a week.

The additional services will further assist to accommodate transiting customers from codeshare partners, Qantas, Emirates, Srilankan Air and Finnair. One-way low fares for this route start from just SGD$96. 

Jetstar Asia management statement

In commenting on the scheduling increases, Mr Woo Wai Keong, Jetstar Asia’s Regional Sales Manager for SEA, said it was encouraging to see demand for air travel continue to recover as consumer confidence is restored. He noted the increase in load factor, saying:

“In July, Jetstar Asia’s Load Factor averaged over 90 per cent meaning we are welcoming more passengers on board our flights and are making the world more accessible for our customers again.”

“By restoring and growing our short-haul network, we’re helping reconnect families and friends, giving our customers more opportunities to take a well-deserved break, while helping rebuild economies of the communities we fly to.” 

Re-timing of services to Ho Chi Minh City

In addition to the increased flight frequencies for Manila and Bangkok, the airline has also planned a retiming of scheduled flights between Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City.

Singapore – Ho Chi Minh City

Commencing 19 August, Jetstar Asia will retime two services to depart on Friday and Sunday evenings instead of Wednesday and Sunday mornings. The move is intended to allowcustomers to make more of their stay. 

Additionally, the service also helps customers connect from codeshare partners Qantas, Emirates, Srilankan Air, Finnair and KLM flights.

The turnaround return flight from Ho Chi Minh will depart at 10:00pm and arrive in Singapore at 1:00 am with one-way low fares starting from SGD73.
