Airport authorities in Singapore have approved Jetstar Asia’s plans to operate 21 additional weekly services to a quintet of short-haul destinations — namely Bali, Bangkok, Penang, Phnom Penh, and Phuket — in December. Jetstar Asia CEO Barathan Pasupathi said in a statement, “We’re seeing strong demand for air-travel in the upcoming holiday period, and we’re responding to ensure more of our customers have more options for low-fares travel during this time.” He also said the move reflected the budget carrier’s ongoing focus on rebuilding its network.

Services to Bangkok will increase from nine to 17 flights a week with two extra weekday frequencies and one Sunday service, to support the pent-up demand for travel between Singapore and the Thai capital. Similarly, five more Phuket-bound services will be added to weekly flight schedules, offering customers daily flights to the popular beach destination.

An additional weekday service will be operated to Phnom Penh, offering Jetstar Asia customers daily flights to Cambodia. Two extra services to Penang are also in the pipeline. Over in Indonesia, five additional flights are planned for Bali, raising the weekly total from nine to 14.

One-way low fares start from S$130 to Penang, $136 to Phnom Penh, S$138 to Bali, S$156 to Phuket, and S$182 to Bangkok. All Jetstar Asia services will continue to operate out of Terminal 1 at Singapore Changi Airport until March 2023.

Passengers seeking more flexibility in case their travel plans change should add FareCredit to their bookings on selected flights in the Jetstar network. With FareCredit, customers can cancel their booking up until airport check-in opens and get a credit voucher for the value of the flight, plus any in-flight extras like check-in baggage, meals, seat selection, and more.
