Jetstar will add up to six additional weekly services between Singapore and Perth from 31 March 2013, offering an extra 2,000 seats per week between the two cities.
Jetstar Asia CEO Bara Pasupathi said the airline’s new schedule of up to 13 return flights per week will give more Singapore travellers the opportunity to fly to one of their favourite Australian destinations.
“Singapore travellers are the third biggest group of visitors to Perth*," Mr Pasupathi said.
"Last year, Jetstar Asia carried more than 100,000 passengers between Singapore and Perth. We expect to grow this number significantly with these additional services, giving passengers greater convenience in travelling between the two cities.
"The additional services from Perth will see a 40 per cent increase in connections from our Singapore hub to Southeast Asian hot spots like Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Phuket and Ho Chi Minh City along with Greater China cities in Hong Kong and Taipei, making these destinations more accessible.”
Jetstar Asia is the first Singapore-based low cost carrier to offer twice daily flights between Singapore and Perth.
