Pack your bags - Jetstar Asia resumes services to Perth
Singapore: Today, after more than four years, Jetstar Asia has resumed its Singapore to Perth services, the third Australian destination in the airline’s network following the relaunch of flights from Singapore to Darwin and Melbourne.
Jetstar Asia flight 3K133 departed Singapore’s Changi Airport at 4:05pm and is expected to arrive in Perth at 9:30pm. The returning flight 3K134, a designated Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) service, will depart at 10.30 pm, arriving back in Singapore at 3:50am.
Jetstar Asia will operate four weekly services to the Western Australian capital to meet the pent-up demand for travellers wanting to return to this ever-popular destination.
Jetstar Asia’s CEO, Bara Pasupathi, said before the pandemic, Singaporeans made up one of the largest group of visitors to Perth and now quarantine-free travel was back on the menu, they expected the route to be as popular as ever.
“With family ties, education and business interests, not to mention the incredible places to visit in Western Australian from Fremantle, Rottnest Island and Monkey Mia to the stunning Margaret River region, we know this destination is high of people’s list of places to visit,” Mr. Pasupathi said.
“While we have operated a handful of services over the past two years to support business needs in Perth, Jetstar Asia is very excited to officially add Perth back into our schedule.
“We know our customers are eager to reunite with friends and families, as well as enjoy the incredible beaches, vineyards and natural wonders WA has to offer, so I’m sure they will welcome Jetstar Asia’s low fares as well as the recent easing of quarantine requirements and the move from PCR tests to ART.
“And in return, we can’t wait to welcome Western Australians back to the Lion City while providing them access to services operated by Jetstar’s global network of codeshare and interline partners, as well as Jetstar Asia’s Southeast Asian network.”
Tourism Minister Roger Cook said he welcomed the resumption of the Jetstar Asia flights from Singapore to Perth.
“Western Australia is open for business and open for tourism,” Minister Cook said.
“We look forward to welcoming more tourists and travellers to Perth on the new Jetstar Asia service.”
