Singapore: Jetstar Asia has announced a new direct service between Singapore’s Changi Airport and Wuxi’s Sunan Shuofang International Airport, launching on 28 December 2023, just in time for the new year peak.
The only airline to operate this direct service, the Singapore low-cost airline is expecting to fly more than 70,000 customers each year between the two destinations, initially operating two weekly return services on the Airbus A320, increasing to four weekly services from 15 January 2024.
Wuxi is located in the southern Jiangsu province, just over 100 kilometres from Shanghai and sits on the banks of Taihu, one of China's largest freshwater lakes. A historically and culturally prominent city, Wuxi is also an economic centre and export hub.
Jetstar Asia CEO, Barathan Pasupathi said he was pleased to announce a second China destination, with Wuxi promising to be another popular city in Jetstar Asia’s growing network.
“Since China reopened their borders and entry requirements for foreign visitors returned to what they were pre-COVID, we’re seeing strong interest for services to key Chinese ports as well as increasing demand for services from China to Singapore,” Mr. Barathan said.
“China is an important market and following the successful launch of our services to Haikou earlier this year, we’re excited to add another Chinese city to our growing list of destinations and believe Wuxi has the right dynamics to be a successful route.
“There is so much to see and do in Wuxi and the surrounding region, and in return our Chinese customers will enjoy direct low-cost flights to Singapore as well as access to our expanding network of incredible Southeast Asian countries.
“With the help of our incredible low fares, we’re looking forward to boosting two-way travel between these cities to enhance travel and tourism and to enable family and friends to reunite in time to welcome the New Year and celebrate the Year of the Dragon together.”
To celebrate the launch of this new direct service, Jetstar Asia will launch special one-way fares from Singapore to Wuxi for travel between January and May 2024 from just SG$178#, available on jetstar.com from 10:00 (SGT) tomorrow, 10 October until 23:59 (SGT) on 16 October 2023.
