Jetstar reintroduces transit with alliance partners Air France, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and British Airways at Changi Airport
Singapore: Jetstar Asia has welcomed back Air France, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and British Airways# to its international carrier partnerships. The renewed partnerships enable customers to seamlessly connect between Jetstar Asia’s Southeast Asian network and the European airlines’ global network via Singapore’s Changi Airport.
Customers travelling to/from Europe on these full-service carriers can once again transfer to a Jetstar Asia (3K) service in Singapore and travel to any of the ten destinations Jetstar Asia currently operates to Bangkok, Clark, Ho Chi Minh City^, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Penang, Phnom Penh, Phuket* and Surabaya.
Clive Ashmore Butler, Head of Commercial and Alliances, Jetstar Asia said it was great to see more airlines return to Singapore, helping restore its position as a global hub.
“Jetstar Asia’s longstanding partnerships with Air France, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and British Airways will provide more exciting travel opportunities for our customers and a significant boost in the revival of Singapore’s air travel hub,” Mr. Ashmore Butler said.
“The Singapore Government, Changi Airport and Jetstar Asia have an unwavering commitment to maintaining COVID-safe practices and providing peace-of-mind to all who transit through Singapore.
“While travelling, Jetstar’s Fly Well safety measures offer all our passengers an added layer of protection and demonstrate our commitment to keeping our people and our customers safe.”
Air France, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and British Airways join Emirates, who was the first Jetstar codeshare partner to recommence transit passengers via Singapore on 15 April.
Transit travellers must book their entire journey in one booking and check with the relevant authorities to ensure they meet all the relevant entry requirements for their final destination as restrictions may apply.
Transiting customers will be checked through at their first international departure point for the onward connecting service at Changi. While on board Jetstar Asia, customers will enjoy a meal or snack and the same luggage allowance as on their full-service carrier flight.
Depending on the connection, transit passengers may be guided into transit holding areas to shop, eat and sleep safely before boarding their flight to their final stop.
The Jetstar Group was recently named Asia Pacific’s best low-cost airline in 2021 and currently flies to ten key destinations in Southeast Asia. Access to all other destinations in Jetstar Asia’s scheduled network will be subject to regulatory approvals once border restrictions are eased.
