Jetstar Asia Chief Executive Officer Ms Chong Phit Lian and Jetstar Group CEO Mr Bruce Buchanan announced the new services in Hanoi today.

“This is Jetstar’s 28th destination with direct services to be offered from Singapore,” said Mr Buchanan.

“Hanoi is a great place to visit. It is steeped in history and features magnificent parks, lakes, more than 600 temples and pagodas and great cuisine.

“The new service will appeal to both holiday makers and business travellers keen to access alternative low fares to Vietnam.

With the new services and increased frequencies, Jetstar will operate 50 flights per week between Singapore and Vietnam, with almost 10,000 passengers moving between both countries each week.

Mr Buchanan also added: “This service will complement and build on the existing domestic services already operated by Jetstar Pacific within Vietnam.”

“This year, we also intend to extend our lead as the largest low cost carrier in Singapore,” Mr Buchanan added.

Ms Chong added that the new services would give Asia Pacific passengers better access to the Jetstar network, allowing them to tap more easily into the carrier’s rapidly growing Singapore hub.

The Jetstar Group, which flies to 56 destinations in 17 countries, is the fastest growing low-cost airline in the Asia Pacific region.

Its pan Asian network extends from Australia through Singapore, as well as to Japan, China, and Vietnam. The airline also operates domestic services in New Zealand, and direct flights from Singapore to Auckland and Melbourne.
