Jetstar will fly direct budget long haul between Singapore and Osaka

Starting from November 1 2012, Australian low-cost airline Jetstar will fly Darwin (Australia) - Singapore -Osaka (Japan) route. The existing route is currently only Darwin - Singapore and Osaka will be added to extend the route to Japan and by this new service, there will be a budget direct flight between Singapore and Osaka. This will be the forth long haul destination of Jetstar from Singapore. The airline currently flies to Beijing (China), Melbourne (Australia) and Auckland (New Zeland) from Singapore.

 The Darwin - Singapore - Osaka route will be served three times a week and the service frequency will be increased to to four times per week from 17th December 2012. The long haul budget flights of Jetstar are serviced usually serviced by Airbus 330 aircraft with economy and business class options. For this route, shorter Darwin-Singapore leg will be operated by Airbus A321 and the long haul Singapore-Osaka leg will be operated by an A330 with both economy and business classes.

Jetstar Group chief executive officer, Jayne Hrdlicka, said, 'This new service means Darwin will be connected to Osaka as well as Tokyo, and by extension, to three other major Japanese cities via Jetstar Japan's domestic network.'
With this new service, the Jetstar Group will operate up to 31 international services per week to Osaka including long haul services from Cairns and the Gold Coast in Australia with Jetstar Airways and short haul international services from Singapore via Taipei and Manila with Jetstar Asia. Jetstar Airways also operates a service from Melbourne to Singapore, which can then connect to the Osaka flight.
