Jetstar Asia introduces Fukuoka flights
Singapore, February 18, 2014

JETSTAR Asia will begin flying daily from Singapore to Fukuoka via Bangkok on June 26, making the southern city the carrier's third Japanese destination.


“Japan remains a popular destination for travellers in our region and it also represents a market where low-cost travel is growing enormously,” said Bara Pasupathi, CEO of Jetstar Asia.


“This new route will give our Japanese customers two new and highly popular destinations that currently are not served by any of the region’s LCCs (from Fukuoka).”


The service will be operated with an 180-seat Airbus A320 and fares will be available for purchase from tomorrow.


Fukuoka is Jetstar’s third Japanese destination after Tokyo (Narita) and Osaka.

Congratulations to Jetstar Asia for introducing the Singapore - Fukuoka service with A320. With a one stop flight via BKK, I\'m confident it would be a lucrative business since travellers will have greater options in this potential segment.

Good to know. But, it depends on the on-time performance of LCCs in general. It would take some more time for an international LCC to gain the credibility in Japan market. On the othherhand, it surely encourage Japanese frequent travelers to Bangkok from Kyushu due less expencsive.
