There’s now a quicker way for Singapore-based travelers to reach Redang Island off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, thanks to the latest international route from charter airline Berjaya Air. The entire flight from Seletar Airport to Redang Airport takes approximately one hour and twenty minutes, a quarter of the total traveling time required when relying on commercial airliners and boat transfers from the mainland. Holidaymakers departing Changi typically need to transit at Kuala Lumpur for a domestic flight to Kuala Terengganu; with the addition of the 45-minute ferry ride to Redang Island, the journey from Singapore can take five and a half hours.

Berjaya Air’s weekly charter service is the sole direct air link between the Lion City and Redang Island. Flight J8 368 will depart Seletar every Tuesday at 2 p.m. to reach Redang Airport at 3:20 p.m., while Flight J8 369 is scheduled to take off from Redang Island on Fridays at 11:40 a.m., before landing in Singapore at 1 p.m. Passengers will travel aboard an ATR 42-500 aircraft fitted with special livery to promote sea turtle conservation on Redang Island; the plane is named “Jojo Flight” after the resident turtle of The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort, a secluded hideaway with its own stretch of white sand.

Return flights from Singapore are included in the Enchanting Redang Escapade package at The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort. Starting from S$2,096 (US$1,534) nett per person, it encompasses three nights’ accommodation with daily meals, a hygiene pack, a welcome evening cocktail, recreational activities, and more. Guests will have access to the Seletar Business Aviation Centre, and be entitled a 15-kilogram check-in luggage allowance per person, express boarding, as well as refreshments on board.
