Jetstar Asia adds more weekend services to Bangkok and Manila, retime Ho Chi Minh City

Singapore, 4 August 2022 In August, Jetstar Asia will increase the number of services it operates to Bangkok and Manila, providing customers with even more options when visiting two of Southeast Asia’s most popular metropolitan cities. 

As demand for travel to Manila continues to increase, Jetstar Asia will operate two additional morning services on Sunday and Monday from 1 August to meet the pent-up demand. Jetstar Asia will now operate 13 services a week to the Philippines’ capital with one-way low fares start from just SGD138. 

From 6 August, Jetstar Asia will operate an additional Saturday morning service between Singapore and Bangkok, increasing its services to eight return services a week. The additional service will help accommodate transiting customers from codeshare partners, Qantas, Emirates, Srilankan Air and Finnair. One-way low fares start from just SGD96. 

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. 

“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,” Mr Woo said. “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.” 

Starting from 19 August, Jetstar Asia will retime two services between Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City, to depart on Friday and Sunday evenings instead of Wednesday and Sunday mornings, allowing customers to make more of their stay. 

The service also helps customers connect from Qantas, Emirates, Srilankan Air, Finnair and KLM flights. The turnaround return flight from Ho Chi Minh will depart at 10:00 pm and arrive in Singapore at 1:00 am with one-way low fares starting from SGD73. 

Jetstar Asia currently operates more than 200 flights a week from Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1 to 12 key destinations across Southeast Asia.
