Above: The new route to Osaka will connect Singapore with a further three Jetstar Japan destinations.
Jetstar has announced it will launch a thrice-weekly non-stop service between Singapore and Osaka from November 1. The route will be an extension to an existing service between Darwin and Singapore.
Singaporeâ€™s Straits Times reports that the leg between Darwin-Singapore will be operated by an A321, while the long-haul Singapore-Osaka journey will be flown by an A330, with both economy and business classes.
The new route takes Jetstar to 31 international flights per week to Japanâ€™s third-largest city. Long-haul flights leave Cairns and the Gold Coast and short hops already exist from Manila and Singapore (via Taipei).
