Jetstar Asia hikes frequencies to Cambodia, Indonesia, China
Singapore, September 5, 2013

SINGAPORE-BASED LCC Jetstar Asia has announced a slew of increments to flight frequencies for a total of 18 more flights or 17,200 additional seats effective from the start of the northern winter operating season.


For flights out of Singapore beginning October 27, Jetstar Asia will add two more weekly Bali flights to make it a daily service while breaking up its Singapore-Siem Reap-Phnom Penh flights for daily direct service to Phnom Penh and thrice-weekly Siem Reap flights.


The LCC will pump up the Jakarta and Medan routes with four more weekly flights each for 25 and 10 weekly runs respectively.


One more Shantou flight will be added to up the frequency to four flights weekly, while from November 18 onwards, Hangzhou will also receive one more weekly flight for a five-times-weekly service.


Bara Pasupathi, CEO, Jetstar Asia, said the capacity upgrade was the result of the carrier’s acquisition of two new Sharket-equipped Airbus A320s to its fleet.


“Our focus on expanding our South-east Asia network and schedule gives our customers as well as our codeshare and interline passengers, greater choice and access to some of Asia’s most exciting holiday destinations,” he said.


“I’m delighted that Bali and Phnom Penh will now have daily flights operating out of Singapore from the end of October…Previously, passengers travelling to Phnom Penh would need to transit in Siem Reap. With direct flights to Phnom Penh, there will be more seats available from Singapore and travellers will now be able to enjoy more time exploring the destination.”
