Jetstar Airways starts Singapore - Guangzho route

Jetstar Airways, the budget subsidiary of Qantas, will start direct flights from Singapore Changi Airport to Guangzho Baiyun International Airport. This is the seventh mainland China destination will be served by Jetstar, others being Beijing, Guilin, Haikou, Hangzhou, Shantou and Ningbo. The budget airliner, which is my choice to fly to Vietnam, will also increase its services to Ho Chi Minh City Tan Son Nhat International Airport from 21 to 27.

Jetstar group CEO Bruce Buchanan said growth out of Jetstar’s Singapore hub would provide great new low fare travel options leading into the festive season. “We’re gearing up to continue Jetstar’s momentum across much of Asia from our Singapore hub, with new routes and added capacity in 2012,” he said. “Plans are well underway for Jetstar Asia to have three A330s listed on its Air Operators Certificate and for the business to take on functional responsibility for long-haul flights from Singapore.”
The service is provided by Jetstar Asia Airways whose operation base is Singapore. The airliner currently flies to destinations in New Zeland, Burma, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, Australia and India. The airliner announced its interest to start long haul budget services to Europe, Australia and North Asia from Singapore Changi Airport. It is currently providing long haul flights from Singapore to Auckland and Melbourne.
