Jetstar Chief Executive Officer Bruce Buchanan said the new connection provided yet another affordable and easily accessible low fares international holiday destination for West Australians via its expanding flying hub in Singapore which presently serves 18 destinations across South East Asia.

“With every day one-way JetSaver Light fares starting from $219, we believe that the new Jetstar connections from Perth to Phuket via our Singapore hub will be an attractive option for West Australians seeking an affordable Thai holiday,” Mr Buchanan said.
